More than 1 Million Doses Administered Over Past Seven Days    

Vaccine Dashboard Will Update Daily to Provide Updates on the State's Vaccine Program; Go to     

 Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state's vaccination program. 194,837 doses have been administered across the state's vast distribution network in the last 24 hours, and more than 1 million doses have been administered over the past seven days. The week 15 allocation of 1,565,080 first and second doses is expected to finish arriving today.

"Our providers across the state are continuing to work day and night to get shots into people's arms, with our State-run and FEMA-assisted mass vaccination sites now on the brink of delivering 2 million total doses," Governor Cuomo said. "This momentous undertaking is far from over, and we are continuing to work with local leaders to make sure the vaccine distribution is equitable and our vaccination sites are accessible. As New Yorkers we've overcome every challenge COVID brought before us, and now that we are beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel, we need to remain strong, united and determined - and not let our guard down." 

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
