Letter to Governor Cuomo: Vaccines for Agricultural Workers
The NYCLU, the New York Farm Bureau, and several other organizations representing agricultural workers wrote a letter to Governor Cuomo urging that New York expands eligibility for the Covid vaccine to farmworkers. The Centers for Disease Control recommended that agriculture workers be included in Phase 1B of the New York State vaccination schedule. However, they have been excluded. It is imperative that we move quickly to provide eligibility for these essential workers and take steps to overcome the logistical hurdles that may stand in the way of a speedy and successful rollout for this community.
