One Fifth of New York is Now Fully Vaccinated Says Governor Cuomo
The latest bit of promising news from the Governor’s Office is that One Fifth (19.9%) of New Yorkers in the State have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
In addition, over 10 million vaccine doses have been administered with nearly one third (32.5%) of New York having received at least one dose.
Over the past 24 hours, up to a quarter million doses were given.
“Our mission to get every New Yorker vaccinated for the COVID virus and to do it equitably has been without precedent – there was no blueprint and no one had even heard of a mass vaccination site until very recently,” Governor Cuomo said. “We reached this 10 million shots milestone thanks to the heroic work of our providers and those who have staffed vaccination sites around the clock to carry out this unprecedented operation. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude. We still have plenty of work ahead of us, and in order to protect the progress we have made and honor the work of our providers, we must continue to take all the basic safety precautions and remain New York tough.”
