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

"New York has come so far in its fight against COVID and we need to ensure we are doing everything we can to prevent the state from slipping backward," Governor Cuomo said. "The answer here is simple - get vaccinated. It's never been easier and I am urging those who have yet to receive their shots to go out and do so as soon as possible. The vaccine is safe, accessible and free - it is the best tool we have to keep ourselves and our communities safe."

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.
