According to information provided by the Governor's office, the Southern Tier received 38,250 first doses, administering 34,486 of those shots for a 90% rate.

Many counties say they are still being swamped with calls and emails from residents wanting to sign up for vaccines the localities have not yet received.  Officials are urging people not to call their health departments about vaccines.  When doses are received, counties will be notifying residents via the news media and county websites and facebook pages.

Residents, meanwhile, can check the New York State “Am I Eligible” website to see what group they fall in for vaccination priority.
