Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced more than 4.5 million New Yorkers have received at least one COVID vaccine dose. 134,536 doses have been administered across New York’s vast distribution network in the last 24 hours, and more than 1 million doses have been administered over the past seven days.
“Our providers across the state are continuing to work day and night to reach all those New Yorkers who are presently eligible for the vaccine,” Governor Cuomo said. “We still have a long way to go. Vaccine skepticism and barriers in making appointments and then getting to the site continue to impede many New Yorkers from getting vaccinated, and that is why we are persistent in our outreach. Millions more doses still need to be administered across the state, but because we are New York tough, we will get the job done.”
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
