Starting Wednesday, more essential workers will be added to the state's vaccine eligibility list. 

Public-facing government and other public employees, non-profit workers, and essential public-facing business service workers will be eligible for the vaccine. 

This includes public works employees, social service and child service caseworkers, government inspectors, sanitation workers, DMV workers, County Clerks, building service workers, and election workers.

Any vaccination site, aside from pharmacies, will be allowed to vaccinate any eligible person in New York starting March 17, as well.

At this time, pharmacies will remain restricted to vaccinated only those individuals who are 60 or older or teachers.

New York has administered more than 1 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines over the past seven days, according to Governor Cuomo in a press release Tuesday. Cuomo also said that more than 130,000 New Yorkers have been vaccinated in the last 24 hours.
