New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio released the following statement regarding the shortage of COVID-19 vaccines which he said is hampering the opening of new vaccine sites:

“Due to the outrageous vaccine supply shortage and shipments delayed by storms, New York City is forced to delay the opening of our vaccination sites at Empire Outlets on Staten Island and Martin Van Buren High School in Queens originally planned for Thursday.

"I cannot be clearer: we have the infrastructure in place to deliver half a million doses per week. All that’s missing is the supply to get it done. We need our the pharmaceutical companies to step-up and give us the doses we need to vaccinate the people of our city. There is not a moment to waste.”
