NEW COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic Information NEW
NEW A Message from Governor Andrew Cuomo
Following new guidance from the CDC, New York is now including individuals age 65 and up as eligible to schedule appointments to receive the vaccine. Immunocompromised New Yorkers are also eligible to receive the vaccine. We are working with the CDC on how to best define the immunocompromised category. In the meantime, people who are 65 or older can immediately begin finding vaccination locations near them through New York's Am I Eligible? tool. But I want to emphasize that New Yorkers should be patient. Today's change brings the number of eligible New Yorkers to at least 7 million people—and the entire State receives only 300,000 doses per week from the federal government. That's a huge gap between the supply and the number of eligible New Yorkers. Hospitals will continue to prioritize hospital workers and other health care workers—as it is critical to get these workers vaccinated to keep our hospital system functioning and able to handle the continued rise in COVID hospitalizations.
In addition, in New York State, the Finger Lakes Region and the Mohawk Valley Region (our region) have the highest rate of COVID hospitalization by population; 894 hospitalizations in the Finger Lakes Region, which represents 0.07 percent of the region's population, and 329 hospitalizations in the Mohawk Valley Region, which represents 0.07 percent of the region's population.
If you are eligible, please be patient; unless the federal supply increases, it will take time to vaccinate the currently eligible groups.
