All COVID-19 vaccination sites of New York City will now accept walk-in appointments for people who want to take the vaccination, according to the announcement of Mayor Bill de Blasio, with the state becoming the latest city in America to offer vaccination shots without previous scheduling, as the national efforts to vaccinate a lot of population as possible instead of declining demand.
Seeing sites all over New York offering walk in vaccines. I figured supply would exceed demand by summer, but April is well beyond expectations. Nearly 300 million doses have been distributed already – 228 million shots in arms. Spectacular work!

De Blasio said that the walk-in free vaccine shots are open to all New York residents instead of geographic location or age. The public health Commissioner of Chicago announced on Thursday that all vaccination sites in the state, including the United Center, will accept appointment-free shots starting Friday.
The public health commissioner of Chicago, Dr. Allison Arwady, explained that many people are still facing challenges getting appointments because of digital divides. They know there are some people who might, for the moment, might say, Let’s get a vaccine.
On Thursday, county Health Officials of Los Angles said no appointments would need to receive a shot at coronavirus mass vaccination sites through Monday. Whereas the vaccine sites in Austin, Texas, and Houston, San Antonio are also welcoming walk-in people for vaccination.
Chance of Dying from COVID-19 Virus
If you didn’t receive vaccination, the chance of dying from coronavirus is around one in five hundred. However, after receiving the vaccination, your chances of dying from the virus are under one in a million, according to the Director of Public Health in Los Angeles, Dr. Barbara Ferrer.
In spite of efforts by the state and federal governments to endorse the efficacy and safety of available COVID-19 vaccines, the supply of available jabs started to overtake demand in many areas of the country.
However, Joe Biden, the President of the United States, announced on Wednesday that his administration hit its aim of directing two hundred million jabs in his first hundred days in office, according to the analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation published on Tuesday found twenty percent of Americans say they will wither not receive the vaccination or only do if required.
Other seventeen percent said that they would wait and see. Additionally, the Associated Press report published on Friday that officials in many states, including Mississippi, Kansa, and Louisiana, recently turned down offers of further vaccine shipments. According to Stacey Hileman, a Kansas-based nurse, it is some kind of installing, and some people don’t want it.
Furthermore, on Wednesday, the Buffalo News reported that some vaccination points that accept appointment-free jabs in upstate New York are being mainly ignored. Forty-nine percent of the Republicans said that they would refuse to receive coronavirus vaccine shots, according to the poll of an NPR/PBS/Marist released the previous month.
On Thursday, the former U.S. President gave his most passionate endorsement of the vaccine during an interview with the New York Post, stating that he was all in favor of the vaccine jab. He also referred to the vaccine as a real lifesaver that the Americans should take advantage of.
