Diana Rocco reports on plans to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine in New York City, starting with high-risk healthcare professionals, nursing home residents and staff.

Many FDNY members have stated that more information is needed before vaccination.

Two vaccines are about to be released. One is Pfizer and the other is Moderna. Experts say both appear to be 95% effective.

Andrew Ansbro, president of the Unified Firefighters Association, says that about 200 members are currently ill. This is about 2 percent of the unit. Ansbro recommends members to be vaccinated, but it is not required.

“That’s their choice. We’re aiming for this off-duty, not the fire department. We don’t want to pollute the members of the fire department,” Ansebro said.

FDNY officials say whether members decide to vaccinate-it does not affect their activities.

“Everyone understands that first responders need access to it. We encourage members to get it,” Ansbro added.

Authorities say Randall’s Island may be the place to store and administer the vaccine.
