COVID numbers are creeping up again as the county has begun offering booster shots for those who have taken the Pfizer vaccine and qualify for it under CDC guidelines. Here in Rockland, we lost another to COVID, the first in a week. Our total coronavirus death toll is now at 979. The number of hospitalized with COVID is up to 27 and the number of current cases, also up, stands at 1,002. Pearl River-based Pfizer meanwhile submitted data to the FDA Tuesday on their COVID-19 vaccine trials for kids ages 5-11. The FDA is expected to take several weeks to review data. The Pfizer vaccine is currently available for those 12 and up.
