Niagara Falls Conference Center to Become a Mass Vaccination Site
Yesterday we got the news that the CDC has changed their guidelines. But the change is dependent on people getting vaccinated. Soon, we are going to have another place to get it.
As of yesterday, the Center for Disease Control announced that people who are fully vaccinated would be safe to gather with other people who are fully vaccinated without having to wear masks.
They are also adding to the list of people who are eligible to get the vaccine. New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that people 60 years and older are now eligible to get the vaccine.
