Governor Cuomo announced today 1,554,103 New Yorkers are now fully vaccinated with a second dose. Additionally, 157,046 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the last 24 hours. As of 1:00 PM today, New York’s health care distribution sites have administered 90 percent of first doses so far delivered. The week 11 allocation from the federal government is in the process of being delivered to providers for administration.

“New York’s vast distribution network has now immunized over 1.5 million New Yorkers which is really great news. We’re working hard to keep up that momentum and get shots in arms of the entire eligible population, with special attention to Black, Hispanic and poor communities that have been among the hardest hit by COVID,” Governor Cuomo said. “We’ve already seen a 70 percent increase in vaccine supply from the federal government. We hope that number will only continue to increase but it will take time and we must not get complacent or cocky about COVID. I urge all New Yorkers to remain vigilant and keep taking steps we know work to protect themselves and others: wear a mask, social distance, avoid large gatherings.”

Approximately 10 million New Yorkers are currently eligible to receive the vaccine. New York’s vast distribution network and large population of eligible individuals still far exceed the supply coming from the federal government. Due to limited supply, New Yorkers are encouraged to remain patient and are advised not to show up at vaccination sites without an appointment.

The ‘Am I Eligible’ screening tool has been updated for individuals with comorbidities and underlying conditions with new appointments released on a rolling basis over the next weeks. New Yorkers can use the following to show they are eligible:

  • Doctor’s letter, or
  • Medical information evidencing comorbidity, or
  • Signed certification

Vaccination program numbers below are for doses distributed and delivered to New York for the state’s vaccination program, and do not include those reserved for the federal government’s Long Term Care Facility program. A breakdown of the data based on numbers reported to New York State as of 1:00 PM today is as follows. Beginning week 9, allocation totals are inclusive of some excess vaccine doses that have been reallocated from the federal Long Term Care Facility program. The allocation totals below include 66 percent of the week 11 allocation which will finish being distributed to New York provider sites on Sunday.
