Governor Encourages New Yorkers to Keep Using the Tools to Protect Against and Treat COVID-19: Vaccines, Boosters, Testing, and Treatment

43 Statewide Deaths Reported from 6/18 - 6/21

NOTE: Updates to the CDC's cumulative death data files have been paused since June 6, 2022 as the CDC upgrades its system. As of June 22, 2022, CDC reporting has not yet resumed. Any questions about this should be directed to the CDC. During this time, total deaths and new daily deaths reported through HERDS will continue as normal.

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

"As we continue to monitor the numbers, let's continue to use the tools that have allowed us to move forward safely through this pandemic," Governor Hochul said. "Please make sure you are up to date on your vaccine and booster doses. If you're a parent or caregiver to a child under five, talk to your pediatrician about vaccination options. The vaccine is the best defense we have against COVID-19 - it's effective, safe, and readily available throughout the state."

Important Note: Due to the holiday, HERDS data collection from health care facilities was paused from 6/18/2022-6/21/2022. Data from those days were submitted in Tuesday's report. Where noted, totals include four days of cumulative data from 6/18/2022-6/21/2022.  As a result, some data may appear higher than recent trends and is marked below with an asterisk.

Today's data is summarized briefly below:       

  • Cases Per 100k - 21.55
  • 7-Day Average Cases Per 100k - 24.70
  • Test Results Reported - 91,382
  • Total Positive - 4,211
  • Percent Positive - 3.86%**
  • 7-Day Average Percent Positive - 4.95%**
  • Patient Hospitalization - 1,810 (-32)
  • Patients Newly Admitted - 922*
  • Patients in ICU - 206 (-5)
  • Patients in ICU with Intubation - 86 (+15)
  • Total Discharges - 313,678*
  • New deaths reported by healthcare facilities through HERDS - 43*
  • Total deaths reported by healthcare facilities through HERDS - 56,442*

   

** Due to the test reporting policy change by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and several other factors, the most reliable metric to measure virus impact on a community is the case per 100,000 data -- not percent positivity.       

The Health Electronic Response Data System is a NYS DOH data source that collects confirmed daily death data as reported by hospitals, nursing homes and adult care facilities only.     

Important Note: Effective Monday, April 4, the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is no longer requiring testing facilities that use COVID-19 rapid antigen tests to report negative results. As a result, New York State's percent positive metric will be computed using only lab-reported PCR results. Positive antigen tests will still be reported to New York State and reporting of new daily cases and cases per 100k will continue to include both PCR and antigen tests. Due to this change and other factors, including changes in testing practices, the most reliable metric to measure virus impact on a community is the case per 100,000 data -- not percent positivity.   

  • Total deaths reported to and compiled by the CDC - 71,670

This daily COVID-19 provisional death certificate data reported by NYS DOH and NYC to the CDC includes those who died in any location, including hospitals, nursing homes, adult care facilities, at home, in hospice and other settings.      

  • Total vaccine doses administered - 39,241,470
  • Total vaccine doses administered over past 24 hours - 13,467
  • Total vaccine doses administered over past 7 days - 87,793
  • Percent of New Yorkers ages 18 and older with at least one vaccine dose - 92.8%
  • Percent of New Yorkers ages 18 and older with completed vaccine series - 84.2%
  • Percent of New Yorkers ages 18 and older with at least one vaccine dose (CDC) - 95.0%   
  • Percent of New Yorkers ages 18 and older with completed vaccine series (CDC) - 87.7%   
  • Percent of New Yorkers ages 12-17 with at least one vaccine dose (CDC) - 84.0%
  • Percent of New Yorkers ages 12-17 with completed vaccine series (CDC) - 73.9%   
  • Percent of all New Yorkers with at least one vaccine dose - 82.3%   
  • Percent of all New Yorkers with completed vaccine series - 74.6%

All New York State mass vaccination sites are open to eligible New Yorkers aged 5 and older, with walk-in vaccination available at all sites on a first-come, first-serve basis for people aged 12 and older. Information on which sites require appointments for children in the 5-11 age group is available on our website. People who prefer to make an appointment at a state-run mass vaccination site can do so on the Am I Eligible App or by calling 1-833-NYS-4-VAX. People may also contact their local health department, pharmacy, doctor or hospital to schedule appointments where vaccines are available, or visit vaccines.gov to find information on vaccine appointments near them.       

New Yorkers looking to schedule vaccine appointments for 5-11-year-old children are encouraged to contact their child's pediatrician, family physician, county health departments, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), rural health centers, or pharmacies that may be administering the vaccine for this age group. Parents and guardians can visit vaccines.gov, text their ZIP code to 438829, or call 1-800-232-0233 to find nearby locations. Make sure that the provider offers the Pfizer-BioNTechCOVID-19 vaccine, as the other COVID-19 vaccines are not yet authorized for this age group.           

Visit our website for parents and guardians for new information, frequently asked questions and answers, and resources specifically designed for parents and guardians of this age group.      

Yesterday, 2,205 New Yorkers received their first vaccine dose, and 1,727 completed their vaccine series. A geographic breakdown of New Yorkers who have been vaccinated by region is as follows:

The COVID-19 VaccineTracker 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.
