News

(WETM) – New York State reports two consecutive weeks of record low COVID-19 positivity rates statewide.

  • Statewide 7-Day Average Positivity is 0.47%—Has Declined for 67 Consecutive Days

  • 90,801 Vaccine Doses Administered Over Last 24 Hours—Statewide Vaccination Rate is 69.2%
  • 709 Patient Hospitalizations Statewide
  • 11 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Yesterday

“New Yorkers are getting vaccinated in greater numbers every single day, and that means we can take action to reopen the economy, put people back to work and resume normal lives,” Governor Cuomo said. “More shots in more arms is the key to our future, and we’re offering exciting incentives to encourage New Yorkers across the state that today is the day to get their shots. I encourage everyone eligible who hasn’t yet been vaccinated to take advantage of a free $20 lottery ticket or chance to win a SUNY or CUNY Scholarship—let’s put this pandemic in the rear view mirror for good.”

The COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker Dashboard is available to update New Yorkers on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The New York State Department of Health requires vaccinating 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 up-to-date metrics in the state’s vaccination effort. New York State Department of Health-reported data from NYSIIS and CIR differs slightly from federally-reported data, which is inclusive of federally-administered doses and other minor differences. Both numbers are included in the release above.
