NEW YORK (AP) — Gov. Kathy Hochul and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio separately received COVID-19 booster shots on Monday.
The two Democrats received their shots at separate live, on-air news conferences.
They were eligible because they had each received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine earlier this year.
De Blasio got a booster shot of the Moderna vaccine from city Health Commissioner Dr. Dave Chokshi during the mayor’s regular pandemic briefing.
Hochul got her booster at public ribbon cutting at the Decker College of Nursing and Health Sciences in Johnson City, near Binghamton.
Correction: A previous headline for this story incorrectly stated the number of shots Gov. Hochul and Mayor de Blasio had received.
