3/29/2021 - CHAMBER WELCOMES OPENING OF VACCINE ACCESS
The North Country Chamber of Commerce is welcoming the announcement that COVID-19 vaccines will be available to all people age 16 and older starting April 6.
"Acceleration of the vaccination process was far and away the number one priority of the regional business community, as expressed in our annual survey a few months ago," notes Chamber President Garry Douglas, "and that acceleration of supplies and access is clearly happening. Among the many who will be welcoming this development are all of our manufacturers and other businesses who have been anxious for their employees to all be qualified."
"We can all turn our full attention now to encouraging everyone to be vaccinated," says Douglas. "A high level of vaccinations in the North Country is key to reaching normalcy sooner rather than later, and will affect everything from the economy to our part in making the case for progress at our border. We will continue to work with New York State and our county health departments among others to help encourage and maximize participation."
