Health officials: NY distributes 91% of vaccines received
New York is doing a much better job of making sure all of its allotment of vaccine are getting into people’s arms.
Health officials say more than 91% of the vaccine New York has received has been used at the 3,000 distribution sites.
That translates to just over 1.5 million vaccinations so far. Now, more supply is needed.
The Biden administration is responding to that call saying they are already working on it. "They're increasing production of vaccine and they're going to give states projection allocations so states can plan," says Gov. Andrew Coumo (D).
The change will soon allow distributors to know how many doses they are receiving in advance, so they can schedule appointments accordingly.
