As my vaccination reservation is not until mid July and early August, I was quite discouraged and shifted my plan to visit the US to September for the opening of Broadway shows etc.  I then found out the notice  from  NYC indicating that tourists may be able to get vaccination at many places in NYC even if they visit NYC as tourists.  I was all excited about the article and now finding out details.

If I can go to visit NYC AND get vaccinated, it will be best of both worlds. I can see my family and friends in NYC and feel safe and free from Covid-19.  As vaccination in Japan is painfully slow and so inefficient, this option, if I can work it out, will be a great news.
