ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Saturday that 1,554,103 New Yorkers have been fully vaccinated with a second dose. An additional 177,046 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the last 24 hours.

“New York’s vast distribution network has now immunized over 1.5 million New Yorkers which is really great news. We’re working hard to keep up that momentum and get shots in arms of the entire eligible population, with special attention to Black, Hispanic and poor communities that have been among the hardest hit by COVID,” said Cuomo.

According to the governor, approximately 10 million New Yorkers are currently eligible to receive the vaccine. 

Due to limited supply, New Yorkers are encouraged to not show up at vaccination sites without an appointment. 

The “Am I Eligible” screening site has been updated for individuals with comorbidities and underlying conditions.

To prove eligibility, New Yorkers can use the following:

  • Doctor’s letter, or 
  • Medical information evidencing comorbidity, or
  • Signed certification
