More Than 12 Million Vaccine Doses Have Been Administered

174,822 Doses Administered in the Last 24 Hours

More Than 1.5 Million Doses Administered Over Past Seven Days — New Record High

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 one in four New Yorkers are now fully vaccinated for COVID-19. More than 12 million doses of the vaccine have been administered in New York State. 174,822 doses have been administered across the state's vast distribution network in the last 24 hours, and more than 1.5 million doses have been administered over the past seven days, a new record high.

"New York State has done 12 million shots in arms and one in four New Yorkers has been fully vaccinated, which is great news. 38 percent of New Yorkers have gotten at least one dose. Supply is the limiting factor right now, but our distribution network is up and robust," Governor Cuomo said. "The Javits Center is one of the highest performing and best vaccination sites in the country, and we also have pop-up, community-based sites to vaccinate populations that are harder to reach and to make sure we're doing everything we can to have equitable distribution of the vaccine. We've been talking about getting college students vaccinated, which is more of a challenge than you might think. College students have been told early on that this doesn't affect young people as seriously, but ironically we're seeing positivity go up among young people 18 to 24. Even if they believe that they can't get hurt by COVID, they can transmit COVID, and they can transmit COVID to someone who can get hurt. What we're trying to do is get the students vaccinated in the schools before the schools are out."

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.
