52,878 Vaccine Doses Administered Over Last 24 Hours  

31 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Yesterday   

Governor Kathy Hochul today updated New Yorkers on the state's progress combating COVID-19.  

"While breakthrough infections are possible, those who are vaccinated are much less likely to experience the harshest effects of COVID if they do contract it, and are even less likely to die from the virus," Governor Hochul said. "We are approaching the season of gatherings and there's no reason why those who have gotten their vaccine should have to sacrifice the fun of upcoming events. Wear masks to avoid breakthrough infections, wash your hands, and if you remain unvaccinated, take advantage of ongoing incentive programs and get yours 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.
