150K Doses of COVID Vaccine Administered in 24 Hours
As of 1PM today, New York's Health Care Distribution Sites Have Administered 90% of First Doses
Governor Cuomo announced today 1,554,103 New Yorkers are now fully vaccinated with a second dose. Additionally, 157,046 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the last 24 hours. As of 1:00 PM today, New York's health care distribution sites have administered 90 percent of first doses so far delivered. The week 11 allocation from the federal government is in the process of being delivered to providers for administration.
"New York's vast distribution network has now immunized over 1.5 million New Yorkers which is really great news. We're working hard to keep up that momentum and get shots in arms of the entire eligible population, with special attention to Black, Hispanic and poor communities that have been among the hardest hit by COVID," Governor Cuomo said. "We've already seen a 70 percent increase in vaccine supply from the federal government. We hope that number will only continue to increase but it will take time and we must not get complacent or cocky about COVID. I urge all New Yorkers to remain vigilant and keep taking steps we know work to protect themselves and others: wear a mask, social distance, avoid large gatherings."
Approximately 10 million New Yorkers are currently eligible to receive the vaccine. New York's vast distribution network and large population of eligible individuals still far exceed the supply coming from the federal government. Due to limited supply, New Yorkers are encouraged to remain patient and are advised not to show up at vaccination sites without an appointment.
The 'Am I Eligible' screening tool has been updated for individuals with comorbidities and underlying conditions with new appointments released on a rolling basis over the next weeks. New Yorkers can use the following to show they are eligible:
- Doctor's letter, or
- Medical information evidencing comorbidity, or
- Signed certification

To date, New York's health care distribution sites have administered 90 percent of first doses received from the federal government but due to the federal government's limited allocation, appointments have filled up quickly. New Yorkers seeking to determine eligibility and schedule an appointment at a state-run mass vaccination site, can visit the 'Am I Eligible' website. New Yorkers may also call their local health department, pharmacy, doctor, or hospital for additional information and to schedule appointments where vaccines are available.
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 Yorkers who suspect fraud in the vaccine distribution process can now call 833-VAX-SCAM (833-829-7226) toll-free or email the state Department of Health at [email protected] Hotline staff will route complaints to the appropriate investigative agencies to ensure New Yorkers are not being taken advantage of as the State works to vaccinate the entire eligible population.
