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. 269,527 doses have been administered across the state's vast distribution network in the last 24 hours - a record high -, and more than 1.4 million doses have been administered over the past seven days. The week 16 allocation from the federal government is in the process of being delivered to providers. 

"Thanks to the hard work of our providers who work around the clock to get shots into people's arms, we are nearing 10 million total doses since the start of this unprecedented operation," Governor Cuomo said. "Our progress is significant, but we need to maintain it, which is why we are continuing our outreach in communities that need more accessibility and still relying on community leaders to help us address the skepticism. We are lucky to have a reliable partner in the White House, and as we receive more supply from the federal government, we are ready to expand this operation for universal eligibility which begins April 6."

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
