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

"New Yorkers have made great progress beating back this virus, but we have to make sure everyone who's able gets vaccinated as soon as possible to defeat COVID-19 for good - especially with new, more contagious variants of the virus out there," Governor Cuomo said. "Getting shots in arms is the critical factor we need to fully rebuild our economy and secure New York's future. If you haven't received your shot yet, there's ample supply and vaccination sites across the state, so make an appointment or simply walk in today."

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.
