 Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced more than 13 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in New York State. 249,255 doses have been administered across the state's vast distribution network in the last 24 hours, and nearly 1.5 million doses have been administered over the past seven days. To date, more than 3 million doses have been administered through New York State-run and FEMA-partnered mass vaccination sites.            

"Thanks to our dedicated health professionals and the effectiveness of our robust distribution network, our mission to get everyone vaccinated quickly and equitably continues to be a success," Governor Cuomo said. "As we continue to see steady progress in our vaccination rate all across the state and more than 40 percent of New Yorkers have received at least one dose, we cannot afford to get cocky or comfortable. The virus is still with us, and we need to stay ahead of the infection rate so we can continue our hard-earned progress. It is imperative therefore that we stay vigilant, and I urge everyone who has not yet scheduled a vaccination appointment to do so quickly."      

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
