Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday announced 102,907 first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine had been administered in the past 24 hours. The total week 9 federal allocation of vaccine delivery to providers was set to be completed yesterday. As of 11 a.m., New York's health care distribution sites had received 2,192,675 first doses and already administered 89% (1,957,681) first-dose vaccinations and 83% of first and second doses.

The week 10 allocation from the federal government allocation from the federal government begins mid-week.

"We remain locked in a footrace between the infection rate and the vaccination rate, and while we are making significant progress on both fronts thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers, but can't become complacent – now is not the time to get cocky with COVID,"  Cuomo said. "With more than 10 million New Yorkers now eligible for the vaccine, we have the infrastructure in place to get it administered quickly and fairly, but continue to only be held back by the supply. Thankfully, with real leadership now in Washington, we've begun to see that supply increase and expect that trend to continue until New York is COVID-free."

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 Monday, 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.

Approximately 10 million New Yorkers are currently eligible to receive the vaccine. The federal government has increased the weekly supply by more than 20% over the next three weeks, but 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.

Vaccination program numbers below are for doses distributed and delivered to New York for the state's vaccination program, and do not include those reserved for the federal government's long-term-care facility program. A breakdown of the data based on numbers reported to New York state as of 11 a.m. Sunday is as follows. The allocation totals below include 100% of the week 9 allocation. The total week 9 allocation is also inclusive of some excess vaccine doses that have been reallocated from the federal long-term-care facility program.
