Vaccination Progress to Date

COVID-19 VACCINATION PROGRESS TO DATE

The statewide data in the table below corresponds to the following definitions and sources as noted.

  1. “% of Population (CDC)” represents the total number of New Yorkers vaccinated anywhere and by anyone as reported by CDC, including state, local and private vaccination providers (includes Federal entities such as Veterans’ Hospitals and New Yorkers who received their vaccinations in other states) as a percent of the total New York population over the age of 18.
  2.  “Total” represents the total number of individuals vaccinated in New York State by state, local and private vaccination providers as reported to NYSIIS and CIR.
  3. “% of Population” represents New York residents vaccinated in New York State by state, local and private vaccination providers as a percent of the total New York population over the age of 18.

County-level vaccination data is based on data reported to the New York State Immunization Information System (NYSIIS) and the New York City Citywide Immunization Registry (NYC CIR) by the providers administering vaccines.

Frequently Asked Questions

The New York State Department of Health works closely with all facilities reporting COVID-19 immunizations to ensure timely and accurate data is captured. As such, updates may occur as new data becomes available, and previously published data may change.

 

Where does vaccination data come from?

This report is created by the New York State Department of Health from CDC data on administrations and data reported to the New York State Immunization Information System (NYSIIS) and the New York City Citywide Immunization Registry (NYC CIR).

Statewide and zip code-level vaccination numbers are provided by the CDC. This data includes administrations through Federal entities and administrations to New York residents performed in other U.S. states.

County-level vaccination data is based on data reported in NYSIIS and CIR. This data does not include vaccine administered through Federal entities or performed outside of New York State to New York residents. NYSIIS and CIR data is used for county-level statistics in order to provide more complete data for individuals over 18, as the CDC suppresses age-based data for small sample sizes.

Demographic data (race, ethnicity, age and gender) is based on data reported in NYSIIS and CIR, and supplemented with data collected by NYS DOH. Because demographic data is more complete in the NYSIIS and CIR systems, the New York State tracker continues to rely on NYSIIS and CIR data wherever granularity on race, ethnicity, age and gender is required.

 

How often is this data updated?

Data on the dashboard is updated daily. New York State Department of Health requires all New York State vaccination providers to report all COVID-19 vaccination administration data to state and city immunization system(s) within 24 hours of administration. Doses received is updated on a weekly basis.

Who can get the vaccine now, and when will I be able to?

All New Yorkers are eligible to get vaccinated.

Vaccines are available at pharmacies, hospitals, mass vaccination sites operated by New York State, local health departments, and other providers statewide – please contact your provider of choice to schedule your vaccine appointment.

A wide network of State-run sites are distributing vaccine statewide – to determine eligibility and schedule appointments at New York State-run vaccination sites only, use the Am I Eligible app. Eligible New Yorkers can also make an appointment at a New York State operated vaccine site at ny.gov/vaccine or through the New York State COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., 7 days a week at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829).

 

What explains any differences in vaccine data on NYS dashboard compared to the CDC website?

The CDC website includes doses administered through federal entities – including Department of Defense, Veterans Health Administration, and Bureau of Prisons – and doses administered to New York State residents by out of state providers who do not report to the New York State Immunization Information System (NYSIIS) or the New York City Citywide Immunization Registry (NYC CIR). New York State’s Vaccine Tracker displays both CDC data and NYSIIS and CIR data for statewide vaccination rates. New York State’s Vaccine Tracker uses CDC for zip-code level total vaccination rates.

“Individuals vaccinated” at the statewide level reflect vaccines administered by New York providers (including vaccines administered to non-New York residents).

The CDC data on doses delivered reflects the total number of doses reserved for New York State to date, inclusive of doses scheduled for shipment to New York State for the current week or subsequent weeks. New York State’s Vaccine Tracker updates doses delivered at the end of each week based on the doses fully received by New York State providers that week. 

 

What explains any differences between the COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker: Vaccination Progress to Date and the Regional Vaccination Progress by New York Providers dashboard?

The COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker: Vaccination Progress to Date dashboard shows all vaccinated individuals according to their county of residence. Residency is self-reported by the individual being vaccinated.

The Regional Vaccination Progress by New York Providers dashboard reflects all people vaccinated by New York providers. While most individuals get vaccinated through providers located in their region of residence, there may be cases where individuals get vaccinated through a provider located outside their region of residence. This may result in slight variations in the number of doses administered and individuals vaccinated from region to region.
