36,564 Vaccine Doses Administered Over Last 24 Hours

17 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Yesterday 

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

"New Yorkers are fighting the COVID virus across the state, but it's going to take a concerted effort to get shots in arms that will allow us to move past this pandemic and into the future," Governor Cuomo said. "The Delta variant is a serious threat to all unvaccinated New Yorkers, and we're working hard to get the vaccine into underserved communities with lower vaccination rates. The vaccine is safe, free and effective, and I urge everyone who is able to take it as soon as possible."

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.
