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

"The holiday season is a special time of year when we gather with our families and loved ones, but we're also headed into a vulnerable time when more people are traveling, gathering indoors, and the chance of spreading COVID-19 is higher," Governor Hochul said. "We know how to prevent the spread of this deadly virus -get vaccinated. If you're vaccinated, then get the booster, and if you've done both then encourage your friends and loved ones to get vaccinated. Now is the time to do it. Let's get through the holiday season without any spikes."

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.
