COVID-19 Dashboards

(WETM) – New York is vaccinating individuals as more doses become available. Gov. Cuomo says they are working as fast as they can to get shots into arms as soon as they receive them.

“Vaccinations for COVID-19 are progressing as fast as we can get shots in arms, and while that’s good news, the pandemic isn’t over and New Yorkers have to stay vigilant. It’s critical that we continue washing hands, wearing masks and social distancing across the state to slow the spread and keep each other safe,” Governor Cuomo said. “New York is expanding eligibility and opening new vaccination sites statewide with a particular focus on historically underserved communities, and we’re holding fast to that commitment. However, New Yorkers should take continuing infections and new variants into account as we move forward toward the light at the end of the tunnel together.”
