Governor Andrew M. Cuomo updated New Yorkers on the state’s vaccination program. 183,924 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.

“We’re very close to having one out of every four New Yorkers with at least one shot in their arm, but the battle is far from over and we cannot get too cocky,” Governor Cuomo said. “Even as we continue to reopen our economy, we remain laser focused on continuing to make the vaccine accessible. Thankfully we have a committed partner in the White House and we are working to ensure our capacity is ready to administer it fairly and efficiently.”  

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
