178,118 Doses Administered Across New York State in the Last 24 Hours
More than 1.12 Million Doses Administered Over Past Seven Days
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s vaccination program. 178,118 doses have been administered across New York’s vast distribution network in the last 24 hours, and more than 1.12 million doses have been administered over the past seven days. The week 13 allocation from the federal government continues being delivered to providers for administration.
“Our recovery and our ability to continue to reopen our state rely on our continued progress in getting more New Yorkers vaccinated, which is why our providers are working day and night to get more shots into people’s arms,” Governor Cuomo said. “Even with one out of every five New Yorkers now having gotten a first shot, it is critical that we continue our outreach in hard-hit communities and make the vaccine accessible to every resident. We now know that Washington is serious about giving states and cities a helping hand, and with a strong ally in the White House, we are well positioned to build back better and defeat the beast.”
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
