Governor Hochul Provides September 10, 2021 Updates New Yorkers on State’s Progress Combating COVID-19

58,138 Vaccine Doses Administered Over Last 24 Hours

43 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Thursday

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

“Many New Yorkers are continuing to catch COVID-19 as we work to fight the pandemic across the state. Although many have gotten vaccinated, we need to push those numbers even higher to defeat this virus for good,” Governor Hochul said. “We’re working to get more vaccines in underserved communities across New York—particularly among 12 to 17-year-olds—and that’s why we’re opening new pop-up sites and leveraging a social media campaign to get the word out. The shot is safe, free and effective, so let’s all protect our friends and neighbors and get vaccinated 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.
