ALBANY, NY (WSYR-TV) – New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo says health care distributors in New York are receiving 1,304,050 first-time doses of the coronavirus vaccine at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday and are 93 percent, or 1,210. 339 first-dose vaccinations had given 74 percent of the first and second dose. The federal government will not deliver the allocation for the seventh week until the middle of this week.
“We know the vaccine is the weapon that ends the war. Because of this, New York has built a huge infrastructure of vendors and pop-up sites to reach out to people on a large scale quickly and fairly. The only problem – we don’t have nearly enough supplies, ”said Governor Cuomo. “This is not just a New York problem, it happens across the country. The previous government opened the floodgates on eligibility and instead of increasing the supply, they actually reduced it. We have the demand and the infrastructure to easily carry out over 100,000 vaccinations per day, but our hands are tied – we need more supply! “

New York’s vast distribution network and large number of eligible individuals far exceed the federal government’s vaccine supply. While the federal government increased eligibility for the vaccine to 7 million New Yorkers, the supply of federal vaccines has actually decreased. Due to the limited supply, New Yorkers are encouraged to be patient and it is recommended not to show up at vaccination sites without an appointment.

To date, the New York healthcare distribution centers have delivered 93 percent of the first doses received by the federal government. However, due to the limited allocation by the federal government, the dates quickly filled up. New Yorkers wishing to determine eligibility and schedule an appointment at a state mass vaccination site can visit the Am I Eligible website. New Yorkers can also call their local health department, pharmacy, doctor, or hospital for more information and to schedule appointments when vaccines are available.
The COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker Dashboard is available to alert New Yorkers to the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The New York State Department of Health requires vaccination 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 current metrics for the state’s vaccination efforts.
