(Bloomberg) -- New York will give fewer or no new doses to health-care facilities that are slow to administer the Covid-19 vaccine, Governor Andrew Cuomo said.

Faster facilities will get more doses, Cuomo said Monday during a press briefing. He pointed to a wide disparity of administration, with many places using all of their allotment while others have distributed 20% to 50%.
