Governor Kathy Hochul received a Covid-19 vaccination booster dose after she cut a ribbon at Binghamton University's Decker College of Nursing and Health Sciences.
Hochul visited the recently-renovated Endicott Johnson factory building on Corliss Avenue in Johnson City on Monday.
Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger noted $133 million is being spent in the village to develop the school's 15-acre Health Sciences Campus.
Hochul praised those who worked to bring the long-dormant structure back to life.
The governor then received a Moderna booster shot as university and local officials looked on. Last March, Hochul received a Johnson & Johnson vaccination.
Responding to a reporter's question, Hochul indicated there are no plans to reopen mass vaccination sites at this time.
The governor said the "situation is different" now compared to several months ago when vaccines first became available.
With the anticipated federal approval of vaccinations for children as young as five years old, Hochul said there currently is an "ample supply." But if long lines or shortages develop, she said the state could reopen mass vaccination sites "very quickly."
