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

"COVID-19 continues to spread across New York State and threaten the lives of New Yorkers, and we're committed to driving vaccination rates up across the state," Governor Hochul said. "We're working to get the vaccination numbers up and requiring universal mask use to keep our children and school professionals safe, but we still need to reach New Yorkers across the state who haven't received the shot. This pandemic is not over and the vaccine has now received full approval from the FDA, so don't delay and get your shot right away."

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.
