The most important New Year’s resolution I could offer you, in January 2021, we’re going to vaccinate a million New Yorkers. A million people. we will reach in january. This city can do it. This city’s incredible health professionals are ready. We will be setting up new sites throughout the city in addition to the many sites already operational. We are going to move from our hospitals and clinics to community clinics and to locations that we will set up all over the city. Our goal is to reach over 250 locations across the city. It’s going to be a huge effort. It will be part of the largest single vaccination effort in New York City history. It will take a lot of work. It will require enormous urgency and concentration. And we will need the help of the federal government. We will need the help of the state government. We will need the help of the vaccine manufacturers. But we are clearly telling the world that we can do a million vaccinations in January. We get that help, we’ll get there.
