More Than 15% of New Yorkers Are Now Vaccinated for COVID-19

239,288 Doses Administered Across New York State in the Last 24 Hours—New Record High

More than 1 Million Doses Administered Over Past Seven Days

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 that more than 3 million New Yorkers, or more than 15 percent of the population, are now vaccinated for COVID-19. 239,288 doses have been administered across the state's vast distribution network in the last 24 hours—a new record high—and more than 1 million doses have been administered over the past seven days. The week 15 allocation from the federal government is in the process of being delivered to providers.

"We continue to expand eligibility and establish more mass and pop-up vaccination sites as we race against the clock to beat New York's COVID positivity rate. We're working 24/7 to get shots in arms and more New Yorkers are being vaccinated for COVID-19 every single day," Governor Cuomo said. "We're expecting a greater supply from the federal government, and New York's vast network is ready to distribute it. In the meantime, we need residents to continue practicing safe behaviors and caring for their fellow New Yorkers when they make decisions that could have an impact on the public health."

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 AM today is as follows.

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.
