NEW YORK — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio received the COVID-19 vaccine Thursday during his daily briefing.
The mayor received the Johnson & Johnson single-shot vaccine, administered by Health Commissioner Dr. Dave Chokshi.
“That was easy,” he said upon receiving the vaccine.
De Blasio said he waited until new groups, including public-facing employees, were eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine to receive his shot.
He wanted to show New Yorkers he had full faith in the safety and efficacy of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
