ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — News10NBC has a fact check on a new public health measure that has many viewers worried.

It has to do with that downstate proposal to make the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory.

State Sen. George Borrello is providing some clarification.

He says that the bill has been introduced in the State Assembly, but nothing has been brought to the State Senate.

Getting the bill through the Senate would have to happen before the bill made it to Gov. Andrew Cuomo's desk.

Borrello says he's opposed to the measure because it's unconstitutional and that believes any effort to get people vaccinated should be based on trust and not mandates.
