 Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state's vaccination program. 154,049 doses have been administered across the state's vast distribution network in the last 24 hours, and more than 1.3 million doses have been administered over the past seven days.  

"Our operation continues to make steady progress and we are indebted to the health professionals and the volunteers who have been behind this unprecedented effort," Governor Cuomo said. "The best way to show our appreciation for their service is to get vaccinated and to continue to exercise the safety measures that help prevent new infections. We have come a long way, but the virus is still with us and we need to stay strong, united, and "New York tough" in order to defeat this beast."    

New Yorkers can schedule an appointment at a state-run mass vaccination site on the Am I Eligible App or by calling 1-833-NYS-4-VAX. People may also contact their local health department, pharmacy, doctor or hospital to schedule appointments where vaccines are available, or visit vaccinefinder.org to find information on vaccine appointments near you. 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.
