Per Larry Brooks, the Rangers have cancelled practice today, and will be getting the COVID vaccine instead. The vaccine is now available to New Yorkers over 16 years of age.
2/2 From NYR: “With the COVID-19 vaccine now extended to anyone over 16, we’re excited that many of our players and staff opted to get vaccinated. We applaud New York’s efforts to expand eligibility and encourage our fans to get vaccinated.”

Given the Rangers have been hit by COVID throughout the season, including their entire coaching staff, this is a good sign for the team. It’s unknown if the entire team will be getting the vaccine, but based on this, it sounds like most opted in.
