ALBANI, New York (WSYR-TV) – Gov. Andrew Kumo says 92% of the New York state COVID-19 vaccines have been given so far.
As of Saturday, New York Health Centers had received 1,178,850 doses of the first vaccine, 92 percent or 1,084,814. After the 1st to 5th week of immunization coverage, the 6th week of New York State immunization providers continued to receive immunization providers.
Vaccination is a tool to win this war, but for it to be truly effective, a few things must happen – we need adequate supply, it must be distributed fairly and equitably, and people must really take it, ”said Governor Kumo. New York has already established networks of some of the nation’s largest vaccine providers, which is good news. The challenge is that the federal government has not fully implemented the immunization process. Not only did they open the eligibility barriers to meet the high demand, but they also raised suspicions about the vaccine itself, especially in black, Latino and poor communities most affected by the virus. I do not ask New York residents to do anything that I do not personally do and I want to assure everyone that the vaccine is not only safe, but New York is ready to increase its distribution as soon as we receive it. It’s a new day in Washington and with the right leadership now, I believe these issues will be fixed – we just want it to happen now. ”
New York’s vast distribution network and the large number of eligible people outnumber the federal government’s supply of vaccines. Although the federal government has 7 million New York residents eligible for the vaccine, the supply of federal vaccines has actually declined. Due to limited supply, New York residents are encouraged to be patient and are advised not to go to immunizations without an appointment.
