Governor Cuomo Announces Best Single-Day Performance in Nation at Javits Center Mass Vaccination Site
New York (STL.News) Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the mass vaccination site at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City performed best in the nation from Saturday through Monday. The site administered 13,431 doses over a 24-hour period on Saturday and Sunday, and 13,713 doses over a 24-hour period on Sunday and Monday. 123,124 doses have been administered across New York’s vast distribution network in the last 24 hours. The total week 12 federal vaccine allocation has been delivered to providers for administration. As of 11AM today, New York providers have administered 89 percent of first doses so far delivered. The week 13 allocation from the federal government begins mid-week.
“We continue to work with providers and local leaders across the state nonstop to get more shots into arms and reach all New Yorkers who are presently eligible,” Governor Cuomo said. “Meanwhile we are addressing skepticism and working to further expand access for anyone who faces obstacles making an appointment and getting to a vaccination site because we have a duty to make sure the vaccine distribution is equitable. We are fortunate to have a reliable partner in the White House, and our distribution infrastructure here in New York has allowed us to administer the incoming supply efficiently.
