112,891 Vaccine Doses Administered Over Last 24 Hours

Statewide 7-Day Average Positivity is 0.40%, Lowest in the Country--Record Low for 18 Consecutive Days, Has Declined for 71 Consecutive Days

Additional State-Run Drive Through Testing Sites to Close Beginning Friday, June 18

9 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Yesterday 

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state's progress combatting COVID-19.  

The Governor also announced the demobilizing of additional state-run drive-through COVID-19 testing sites across New York State beginning Friday, June 18. These testing site closures follow historically low positivity rates and an 88 percent decrease in drive-through testing demand from January to May 2021.

"COVID-19 has been the most trying and difficult time in our lives, but New York State is finally moving forward into the future. Vaccination rates are up and COVID numbers are down, and we're reducing restrictions across the board," Governor Cuomo said. "We need New Yorkers to continue getting vaccinated, and that's why we've launched a variety of incentives across the state. The pandemic is on the decline, but vaccination is the key to our success and I encourage any New Yorkers who haven't taken the shot yet to do so right away."

The state-run drive-through test sites will close as follows:

The COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker Dashboard is available to update New Yorkers on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The New York State Department of Health requires vaccinating facilities to report all COVID-19 vaccine administration data within 24 hours; the vaccine administration data on the dashboard is updated daily to reflect the most up-to-date metrics in the state's vaccination effort. New York State Department of Health-reported data from NYSIIS and CIR differs slightly from federally-reported data, which is inclusive of federally-administered doses and other minor differences. Both numbers are included in the release above.
