ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10)-The goal is to vaccinate all of New York’s 19.4 million residents against COVID-19, Governor Andrew Cuomo said in his State of the State address. It’s been a continuing struggle for the state as more vaccine is received from the Federal government week to week.
To help paint a picture of vaccine distribution across New York’s many regions and counties, the state created a COVID-19 vaccine tracking website. Below is a breakdown of doses administered by region/county, what percentage of hospital/skilled nursing home facilities staff and residents have been vaccinated, based on the state’s website.
The state began reporting the number of vaccines administered by county beginning February 18. NEWS10 created a graph that breaks down the number of residents who have received one dose and those fully vaccinated for 12 counties in and around the Capital Region. The number of residents and staff at adult care facilities is also now being reported by the state.
