Governor Cuomo Announces More Than 8 Million People Fully Vaccinated For Covid-19 in New York State
New York (STL.News) Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that more than 8 million people have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 in New York State. 111,885 doses have been administered across the state’s vast distribution network in the last 24 hours, and nearly 1 million doses have been administered over the past seven days.
“New York State is making steady progress getting shots in arms and bringing our population to higher levels of immunity from COVID-19, but we have more work to do before everyone returns to safety and the new normal,” Governor Cuomo said. “Vaccination is a privilege, and we’re working day and night to make the vaccine as accessible as possible by opening new pop-up sites and expanding walk-in appointments. Eight million people have been vaccinated – which is a significant milestone – but we need even more New Yorkers to get the vaccine if we want to beat COVID once and for all.”
All New York State mass vaccination sites are now open to eligible New Yorkers for walk-in vaccination on a first come first serve basis. The walk-in appointments are reserved for first doses only with second doses to be scheduled automatically after administration of the initial shot.
