New Yorkers line up for COVID-19 vaccine in Brooklyn one year since city's 1st reported case

Many seniors waited in line in Mill Basin on Sunday to receive COVID-19 vaccinations one year since the first case was reported in New York City.
El Caribe Catering Hall on Strickland Avenue transformed into a new pop-up vaccination site on Sunday.
Grace Callender joined many other New Yorkers to wait on line for her shot at the site.
"I'm relieved because, like most people, I don't want to catch that virus, I don't want to get sick, and I certainly don't want to die yet," she says.
This all happened on the heels of Johnson & Johnson's single-dose vaccine receiving the final stamp of approval by the Food and Drug Administration for emergency use.
"I'm hopeful, that with the additional vaccine...more people would be eligible to get the vaccine sooner than later, and that they would use the opportunity to do so," Callender says.
The city is expanding their efforts with new pop-up sites across the city. Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced on Saturday that 1.5 million New Yorkers have been fully vaccinated.
"It's amazing that our government has been able to get a vaccine...hopefully cure or prevent this particular disease in a one-year period of time...this has been unheard of in history," says Steven Leibstein, who was waiting on line. "It's an amazing country we live in, and I'm glad to be in line to obtain this shot."
