Governor Cuomo Announces More Than 11.5 Million COVID-19 Vaccine Doses Have Been Administered in New York State


282,305 Doses Administered in the Last 24 Hours

More Than 1.4 Million Doses Administered Over Past Seven Days

More Than 1 in 3 New Yorkers Have Received at Least One Dose

More Than 1 in 5 Are Now Fully Vaccinated

 Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that more than 11.5 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in New York State. 282,305 doses have been administered across the state's vast distribution network in the last 24 hours, and more than 1.4 million doses have been administered over the past seven days.  

"We are now close to having one out of every four New Yorkers fully vaccinated, but we cannot afford to slow down and get comfortable," Governor Cuomo said. "The way to celebrate our progress is to double down on our safety guidelines and continue getting shots into people's arms, so we can build on this progress. The virus is still out there, and we remain laser-focused on expanding our capacity across the state and making sure the vaccine distribution is fair and equitable. If we stay disciplined, we will win this war."

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 11 AM today is as follows.                                       


Total doses administered - 11,669,171
