Hits: 72


WPCNR GOVERNOR’S CORONA VIRUS REPORT. From Governor Kathy Hochul press office. August 25, 2021:

Governor Kathy Hochul Tuesday evening updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress combating COVID-19.

“Fighting COVID-19 and the Delta variant is a top priority for this administration, and although we’re implementing new masking requirements to keep everyone safe, vaccination is the key to our future,” Governor Hochul said. “Millions of New Yorkers have taken the vaccine, but far too many remain unvaccinated and that’s why we continue to operate convenient sites across the state. Getting vaccinated helps your family, friends and community, so get your shot today.”

The COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker Dashboard is available to update New Yorkers on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. 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. New York State Department of Health-reported data from NYSIIS and CIR differs slightly from federally-reported data, which is inclusive of federally-administered doses and other minor differences. Both numbers are included in the release above.
