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

"New Yorkers are continuing to fight COVID-19 every single day, but it's clear that the way we defeat this pandemic is getting vaccinated and we need more shots in arms," Governor Hochul said. "We have sites open and shots available across the state, but it's clear that the Delta variant demands a stronger response, and that's why we're implementing new rules to keep our children safe in New York schools. Millions of New Yorkers have gotten vaccinated easily and for free, so I urge everyone to help protect their families and communities by taking the shot immediately."

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.
