26,063 Vaccine Doses Administered Over Last 24 Hours

7 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Yesterday 

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

"There's no doubt that the Delta variant is real - you can see it in the numbers - but we have been through this before and we know how to keep it under control," Governor Cuomo said. "The vaccine is the weapon that will win the war against COVID, and to get our vaccination rates up even more and protect New Yorkers from the Delta variant we are now requiring all patient-facing health care workers in state hospitals to get vaccinated by Labor Day. All State workers will also be required to get vaccinated, and those who do not will be required to be tested for COVID-19 on a weekly basis. It's smart, it's fair, it's in everyone's interest and it will put us one step closer to defeating this beast once and for all."

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.
