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

“As New York remains focused on rebuilding and revitalizing our economy for a post-pandemic world, ensuring we continue to vaccinate as many people as possible remains the key to defeating this virus once and for all,” Governor Cuomo said. “We’ve come a long way in our efforts to get every New Yorker vaccinated, and we’re continuing to do everything in our power to get even more shots in arms. The future ahead looks bright, but we need everyone who hasn’t yet taken the shot to do so immediately so we can finally defeat this beast.”

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.
