Governor Cuomo Provides August 4, 2021 Update to New Yorkers on State’s Progress During COVID-19 Pandemic


31,802 Vaccine Doses Administered Over Last 24 Hours

5 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Monday

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress combatting COVID-19.

“The vaccine is the weapon that will win the war against COVID, but too many still have not taken advantage of its availability,” Governor Cuomo said. “Every single unvaccinated individual provides the virus an opportunity to mutate into a strain that may be even more harmful than those that came before it. The vaccine is free, accessible and effective, so if you haven’t already, get yours today.”

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.
