    I received my COVID vaccine in February. Frank Olito/ Insider When I became eligible for the COVID vaccine in New York City, I struggled to book an appointment.  I had to scour government websites, call a hotline several times, and turn to third-party sites.  There was a long line at the vaccination site, but the site workers made it run smoothly.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. When I became eligible for a coronavirus vaccine in New York City, I knew it would be difficult to get an appointment after watching the slow and bumpy rollout of the vaccines over the past few months. I've heard from older family members who live in New York and Florida that they struggled to find a vaccination appointment in their areas. In some cases, it took them days and sometimes weeks to finally get the shot. I knew it would...

    More On: COVID vaccine De Blasio clashes with Cuomo again — calls for restaurant workers to be vaccinated UK COVID-19 mutation has evolved again into something ‘worrying’ Russia’s COVID-19 vaccine is 91% effective, study says McDonald’s paying employees to get COVID-19 vaccine People who’ve previously been infected with COVID-19 may only need one dose of the vaccine, a new study suggests.  The study, published Monday in the preprint server MedRxiv, examined the antibody levels of 109 people who received the inoculation in late 2020.  Researchers found that the majority of those who had never contracted COVID-19 showed low immune responses within 9-12 days of the jab, while those who’d recovered from the virus showed a rapid immune response. In fact, those who had previously been infected had antibody levels 10-20 times higher than those who had never been infected after receiving the vaccine, according to the study from the...
    The rate of coronavirus vaccinations is high among nursing home residents in the U.S. but low among staff members, a new report finds. More than three-quarters of people living in long-term care facilities had received at least one dose of the COVID-19 immunization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed on Wednesday. However, when it came to nurses, administrators and others working at centers who were offered the jab, just a little more than one-third had received it. The findings confirm anecdotal reports of nursing home staff members turning down vaccines and feeling they are being treated as 'guinea pigs.' Researchers say more outreach efforts are needed to ensure this vulnerable population that the shot is both safe and effective.   A new CDC report found that nearly 78% precent of nursing home residents have received at least one vaccine dose with half of facilities vaccinating at least 60%...

    New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez provided an epic response to Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz after a bit of Twitter back-and-forth on Thursday. The banter was initially referencing the wild GameStop stock drama, but it quickly escalated and shifted to something else entirely. Ocasio-Cortez posted a tweet questioning a decision by the Robinhood app to freeze its users from trading GameStop stock. She wrote that she found it to be unacceptable, and Cruz soon tweeted that he fully agreed with her as he shared her original post. After that, things took quite the turn. There have been times on social media previously where Ocasio-Cortez and Cruz exchanged tweets that were cordial and suggested a willingness to pursue like-minded legislation together. However, the New York congresswoman was not feeling that way in this case. “I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you...
    Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., said she has been receiving death threats after it was suggested, she believed, that she played a role in aiding insurrectionists who laid siege on Capitol Hill last week. Rep. Sean Maloney, D-N.Y., gave an interview to MSNBC this week confirming that a member of Congress – who supports carrying a gun in the House and had recently clashed with Capitol Police – had given a tour to potential rioters.  Boebert, who fits both criteria, assumed Maloney was implying that she had given the tour, which she denied as "categorically false" in a letter to the New York Democrat. Many members of the American public also assumed Maloney meant that Boebert had given the tour, which resulted in some dangerous consequences. "Your failure to factcheck any of these lies or even talk to me before doing an interview on a national television network has resulted in...
    According to disgraced former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, he would have been among those receiving a late-term pardon from President Donald Trump had he chosen not to “speak truth to power” against his old boss. During an appearance on MSNBC’s “The Beat,” Cohen criticized Trump for his view of presidential pardon powers. “I think it’s like make it rain, right?” Cohen said. “That’s all he’s doing. He’s taking political favors and money, right — by people, for the sole purpose of giving them pardons. I mean, the man has completely usurped the fact that there is a pardon-off — that there are people who should be receiving pardons. Do I think any of these people should be receiving pardons? Absolutely not. I think that Trump has just taken over the entire country. He wants to run it the same way that he ran the Trump organization — as if he...

    Defense Secretary Mark Esper testified on Thursday that he had no recollection of receiving any briefings that “included the word bounty,” amid reports claiming Russia offered bounties to Afghan militants for killing U.S. soldiers. During a hearing before the House Armed Services Committee, Esper was asked about the reports. NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER SAYS TRUMP'S CIA BRIEFER DECIDED NOT TO SHARE RUSSIA BOUNTY INTEL “To the best of my recollection, I have not received a briefing that included the word bounty,” Esper said. Esper was then asked where the intelligence on Russian bounties came from, to which he replied: "It was not produced by a DoD intelligence agency." The New York Times first reported that Moscow allegedly offered bounties to Afghan militants to kill U.S. soldiers last month. Fox News also reported last month that multiple intelligence threat streams indicated Russian intelligence operatives offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. troops. The...
    A coronavirus vaccine spearheaded by Pfizer and BioNTech bolstered immune response to the virus in some, but in others — especially in large doses — the experimental drug caused fevers and other side effects, according to a study Pfizer released Wednesday. Researchers reported “moderate increases” in immune response to the COVID-19 pathogen in those that received low and medium doses of the vaccine. The serum was administered in two doses and “substantially greater” results were observed after a second dose, according to the study, which has not been peer reviewed yet. Those who received the treatment gained double, and at most nearly triple, the coronavirus antibodies of those who recovered from the virus naturally, according to the study. But the experimental serum is not without side effects. Forty-five people were selected to be part of the experiment where participants were split into groups and injected with either 10 microgram (μg), 30 μg,...

    Biden wins Democratic line As expected, Joe Biden on Tuesday (June 23) won the Democratic primary for president in New York state. His name appeared on the ballot with 10 other candidates, all of whom earlier had ended their campaigns.

Statewide, Biden had 67 percent. Dutchess said it had received 15,203 absentee ballots as of Wednesday from Democratic voters, and Putnam said it had received 4,011. There were two Republican primaries in Putnam for seats on the county Legislature.
