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

"My number one priority is getting everyone vaccinated, especially those in healthcare settings. If we can get shots to everyone who needs them, we can keep our businesses open and safe," Governor Hochul said. "We made incredible progress ever since the pandemic started, and I urge everyone to schedule your first shot if you haven't gotten it yet, and take your second dose when you can. Together, we can keep our neighbors and family 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.
