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

More Than 1 in 5 Are Now Fully Vaccinated     

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. 206,178 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.

"New York is increasing its testing, increasing its vaccination efforts and making sure vaccines are available, free and equitable. Today, every New Yorker 16 and older is eligible for a vaccine," Governor Cuomo said. "Our ongoing goals are getting the supply from Washington, having the distribution network and then convincing New Yorkers of the need to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated. We've set up mass vaccination sites across the state to distribute the vaccine efficiently, but we also want to make sure the process is equitable, so we've set up smaller sites in nursing homes, public housing, communities of color, and houses of worship. New York is reaching the point where the tall straw is going to be getting New Yorkers to step up, make the appointment and understand that everybody has to get vaccinated to reach herd immunity. This is safe - over 10 million New Yorkers have taken the vaccine - and it's your citizen duty to take the vaccine."

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
