Gov. Cuomo gives update on vaccine distribution across NYS

Coronavirus Facts First

ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR) — On Saturday, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo updated New Yorkers on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine after the first four weeks of availability for non-long term care facilities.

New York State’s vaccine supply is determined by the federal government, and although more than seven million New Yorkers are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, next week, the state will receive only 250,000 doses from the federal government.

As of Saturday, New York’s health care distribution sites have administered 83 percent of doses received from the federal government. These sites administered an additional 73,336 doses over the prior 24-hour period.

“We are in a footrace to get the vaccine into the arms of eligible New Yorkers as quickly and equitably as possible,” Cuomo said. “However, we now have seven million New Yorkers vying for a fraction of doses made available to use by the federal government. We need Washington to step up and increase New York’s supply to make sure everyone who wants the vaccine has the opportunity to get it.”

Since federal supply severely limits the ability to distribute vaccines, New Yorkers are encouraged to remain patient and are advised not to show up at vaccination sites without an appointment.

A breakdown of the data is as follows (based on numbers reported to New York State as of 10 a.m. on Saturday) :
