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

"New York State is beating back COVID-19, vaccinating its population and rebuilding its economy, and it's the behavior of New Yorkers that makes a vital difference in our ability to slow the spread. As we make progress getting shots in arms, it's important that New Yorkers remember that the infection rate is a function of our behavior both individually and in our communities," Governor Cuomo said. "We continue to open pop-up vaccination sites and bring the vaccine to underserved communities across the state so New Yorkers can access it. The vaccine is easier than ever to take, so I urge New Yorkers who have not yet made an appointment to do so immediately."
