ALBANY, NY (WSYR-TV) – On Sunday, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that 102,907 first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine had been given in the past 24 hours. The entire week 9 of federal allocation of vaccine dispensing to providers will be completed today. By 11.00 a.m. on Sunday, the sales offices in New York had received 2,192,675 first doses and had already given 89 percent or 1,957,681 first dose vaccinations and 83 percent of the first and second doses. The federal government’s assignment of week 10 begins mid-week.
“We are torn between infection and vaccination rates and we are making significant progress on both fronts thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers, but we cannot get complacent – this is not the time to get cocky with COVID,” said Governor Cuomo. “With more than 10 million New Yorkers now eligible for the vaccine, we have the infrastructure to deliver it quickly and fairly, but continue to be held back by only supply. Fortunately, with the real leadership in Washington, we’ve started increasing supply and expect this trend to continue until New York is COVID-free. “

The “Am I Eligible” screening tool has been updated for people with comorbidities and underlying diseases. New dates will be published continuously over the next few weeks. Starting next week, local health departments will also receive vaccine assignments for these people. New Yorkers can use the following to show they are eligible:
- Doctor’s letter or
- Medical information that indicates comorbidity, or
- Signed certification
Approximately 10 million New Yorkers are currently eligible to receive the vaccine. The federal government increased the weekly supply by more than 20 percent over the next three weeks, but the large distribution network in New York and the large number of eligible individuals are still well beyond the federal government’s supply. 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.

So far, New York health care outlets have delivered 89 percent of the first doses received by the federal government, but due to the limited allocation from the federal government, appointments have filled quickly. 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.
New Yorkers suspected of vaccine distribution fraud can now call toll-free at 833-VAX-SCAM (833-829-7226) or email the Department of Health at STOPVAXFRAUD@health.ny.gov. The hotline staff will be referring complaints to the appropriate investigative authorities to ensure the New Yorkers are not being exploited as the state is working to vaccinate the entire eligible population.
