Governor Cuomo Announces More Than 120K Doses of COVID-19 Vaccine Administered in 24 Hours

As of 11AM today, New York Providers Have Administered 95% of First Doses

Vaccine Dashboard Will Update Daily to Provide Updates on the State's Vaccine Program; Go to ny.gov/vaccinetracker

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced 121,067 first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the last 24 hours. As of 11:00 AM today, New York providers have administered 95 percent of first doses. The week 12 allocation from the federal government is in the process of being delivered to providers for administration.

"We remain locked in a footrace to keep the infection and hospitalization rate low and drive the vaccination rate up." Governor Cuomo said. "We're making progress on both fronts, and thanks to our vast network of vaccine providers and targeted community efforts, over 15 percent of all New Yorkers have now been vaccinated with at least one dose. The light at the end of the tunnel is bright, and we will continue to get shots in arms quickly and fairly until every New Yorker is vaccinated and we are the first COVID-free state.

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

Vaccination program numbers below are for doses distributed and delivered to New York for the state's vaccination program, and do not include those reserved for the federal government's Long Term Care Facility program. A breakdown of the data based on numbers reported to New York State as of 11:00 AM today is as follows. Beginning week 9, allocation totals are inclusive of some excess vaccine doses that have been reallocated from the federal Long Term Care Facility program. The allocation totals below include 20 percent of the week 12 allocation which will finish being distributed to New York provider sites on Sunday.

To date, New York providers have administered 95 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.
