NYS should enlist retired Doctors, nurses, medical professionals to expedite vaccinations

Less than one third of the Covid vaccines provide to NYS by the federal gov have been administered


SUGGESTION--NYS SHOULD OFFER RETIRED MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS WHO ASSIST IN ADMINISTERING COVID VACCINES THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET EARLIER VACCINATIONS FOR THEM AND THEIR IMMEDIATE FAMILIES

 would help NYS vaccinate more people quickly


      Re:    New York Should Vaccinate Retired Medical Professionals Who Volunteer to Assist in Administering Covid Vaccines


     News reports that New York State has administered less than one-third of the Covid vaccines provided to the State by the Federal government.  


     The program for the procurement, distribution, prioritization, and delivery of a Covid-19 vaccine, including the logistics of how the doses will be stored and administered, is complex.   This is run by each State.


     To help alleviate the roadblock in New York, I suggest vaccinating recently retired doctors, nurses and emergency medical technicians and their immediate families who volunteer to assist in the State-run vaccine program.   They would be able to then vaccinate other New Yorkers under the State’s program, and perhaps also free up doctors, nurses and EMTs from those duties.     Britain has instituted enlisting the assistance of recently retired medical professionals, and I think the Governor should consider implementing that in New York.  I will reach out to state officials with this suggestion.
