Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has updated New Yorkers on the state's vaccination program. 175,311 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. The week 18 allocation of 1,538,650 first and second doses is expected to finish arriving today.        
"Our providers are working around the clock to get more shots into arms, and we remain focused on making sure the vaccine distribution is equitable and our vaccination sites are accessible," Governor Cuomo said. "Our progress is strong and steady, but so is the capability of this virus, which is why we cannot afford to lose any of the tremendous progress we've made. We are fortunate to have a trusted partner in the White House that has been instrumental in helping to maintain our vaccination supply here in New York, and if we all continue to get vaccinated and practice safety guidelines, we will defeat this beast once and for all."  
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.
Vaccination program numbers below are for doses distributed and delivered to New York for the state's vaccination program, and do not include those reserved for the federal government's Long Term Care Facility program. A breakdown of the data based on numbers reported to New York State as of 11 AM today is as follows.                                                  
  • Total doses administered - 13,297,331
  • Total doses administered over past 24 hours - 175,31
  • Total doses administered over past 7 days - 1,438,340
  • Percent of New Yorkers with at least one vaccine dose - 41.4%
  • Percent of New Yorkers with completed vaccine series - 28.1% 
The COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker Dashboard is available to update New Yorkers on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The New York State Department of Health requires vaccinating facilities to report all COVID-19 vaccine administration data within 24 hours; the vaccine administration data on the dashboard is updated daily to reflect the most up-to-date metrics in the state's vaccination effort.            
New Yorkers may call their local health department, pharmacy, doctor, or hospital to schedule appointments where vaccines are available.      
New Yorkers who suspect fraud in the vaccine distribution process can now call 833-VAX-SCAM (833-829-7226) toll-free or email the state Department of Health at Hotline staff will route complaints to the appropriate investigative agencies to ensure New Yorkers are not being taken advantage of as the State works to vaccinate the entire eligible population.
