New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker Dashboard

The intent of this dashboard is to update New Yorkers on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine including the number of doses received by the state, a breakdown of first and second doses, and the number of persons inoculated with the first and second doses in each region. The New York State Department of Health requires vaccinating facilities to report all COVID-19 vaccine administration data within 24 hours; the vaccine administration data on the dashboard is updated daily to reflect the most up-to-date metrics in the state’s vaccination effort.
