Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s vaccination program. To date, New York’s health care distribution sites have administered 93 percent of first doses received from the federal government, and 91 percent of first and second doses.

“We are racing to administer the vaccine as quickly as possible while doing everything we can to reduce the infection rate. We’ve made progress on both fronts since the post-holiday surge but there’s a long way to go before we reach the light at the end of the tunnel,” Governor Cuomo said. “The State administered 96,000 shots in the last 24 hours, and we have the operational capacity to do even more – but we need more doses from the federal government because the real problem continues to be that the demand outpaces supply. We also need providers to continue prioritizing the groups they are responsible for serving in order for the system to remain fair.”

New York’s vast distribution network and large population of eligible individuals far exceed the vaccine supply coming from the federal government. While the federal government has increased eligibility for the vaccine to include 7 million New Yorkers, the federal supply of vaccines has actually decreased. Due to limited supply, New Yorkers are encouraged to remain patient and are advised not to show up at vaccination sites without an appointment.

A breakdown of the data is as follows (based on numbers reported to New York State as of 11AM today):

To date, New York’s health care distribution sites have administered 91 percent of doses received from the federal government but due to the federal government’s limited allocation, appointments have filled up quickly. New Yorkers seeking to determine eligibility and schedule an appointment at a state-run mass vaccination site, can visit the ‘Am I Eligible’ website. New Yorkers may also call their local health department, pharmacy, doctor or hospital for additional information and to schedule appointments where vaccines are available.

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.
