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 a continuing struggle for the state as vaccine received from the Federal government cannot meet the state’s need.
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 first doses received, received/administered by region, 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 first and second doses for 12 counties in and around the Capital Region.
