2 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Yesterday

ALBANY, NY — Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress combatting COVID-19.

“The vaccine is our strongest defense against the COVID virus, particularly the Delta variant. We don’t want to go backward, we can’t go backward and with the vaccine available there’s no reason why we should go backward,” Governor Cuomo said. “Talk to your doctor, avoid misinformation. Over 11 million New Yorkers have gotten their vaccine to protect themselves and their loved ones – it’s free, safe and accessible. If you haven’t already, you should get yours as soon as possible.”

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.
