Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s vaccination program. As of 11AM today, New York’s health care distribution sites have administered 91 percent of first doses so far delivered. The week 10 allocation from the federal government was delayed due to winter storms impacting much of the country, and week 10 deliveries continue to arrive today. The week 11 allocation will begin arriving mid-week. 

 

“We know the vaccine is the weapon that will win the war against COVID, but there are three obstacles to getting every New Yorker vaccinated – supply, accessibility and hesitancy,” Governor Cuomo said. “Supply from the federal government is increasing steadily every week, but the demand still far outweighs the supply. We already have the infrastructure in place to administer shots as quickly as possible once we get them, and we are continuing to focus on vaccine equity by working with local leaders in our most vulnerable communities to educate more New Yorkers about the safety of the vaccine and encourage them to sign up for an appointment to get vaccinated. Starting this week our largest-yet vaccination sites in Brooklyn and Queens will each begin vaccinating 3,000 eligible New Yorkers daily, prioritizing individuals in communities that were hit hardest by the pandemic, and I encourage everyone who is eligible to make an appointment.”

Approximately 10 million New Yorkers are currently eligible to receive the vaccine. 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. Starting next week, local health departments will also receive vaccine allocations for these individuals. New Yorkers can use the following to show they are eligible:

·         Doctor’s letter, or

·         Medical information evidencing comorbidity, or

·         Signed certification
