Governor Cuomo Updates New Yorkers on State Vaccination Program

Written by Chris Boyle  |  30. April 2021

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has updated New Yorkers on the state's vaccination program. 139,416 doses have been administered across the state's vast distribution network in the last 24 hours, and more than 1.1 million doses have been administered over the past seven days. The week 19 allocation of 1,245,960 first and second doses is expected to finish arriving today.  
 
"Our providers are working around the clock to get more shots into arms, and the best way we can support them is by getting vaccinated and continuing to practice the safe behaviors we know will help defeat COVID once and for all," Governor Cuomo said. "The momentum is on our side and to keep our progress moving in the right direction, we have not only continued to expand access to the vaccine, but we are working hard every day to fight hesitancy as well. We will win the war against this virus, but we can only do it if we work together as one New York community."
 
New Yorkers can schedule an appointment at a state-run mass vaccination site on the Am I Eligible App or by calling 1-833-NYS-4-VAX. People may also contact their local health department, pharmacy, doctor or hospital to schedule appointments where vaccines are available, or visit vaccinefinder.org to find information on vaccine appointments near you.

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 who suspect fraud in the vaccine distribution process can call 833-VAX-SCAM (833-829-7226) toll-free or email the state Department of Health at STOPVAXFRAUD@health.ny.gov. 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.
