 Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state's vaccination program. 117,418 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.

"As we prepare to expand eligibility to all New Yorkers over the age of 16, New York's vaccination program is moving full steam ahead to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic once and for all. We're opening new vaccination sites around the state and preparing for a future increase in supply," Governor Cuomo said. "It's important that residents and their families continue to practice safe behaviors in the interim as more and more people take the vaccine. More than 10 million New Yorkers have received a first dose and we're not stopping now, but there's a long way to go until we've reached a comfortable level of safety for all New Yorkers."

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
