Though it wasn’t quite within the timeline of NYC’s goal, the city has now distributed over 1,000,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses.
Mayor de Blasio just announced the news, on a day when there are 251 new hospitalizations, 3,587 new cases, and a 8.09% positivity rate (over a 7-day average) in the city.
We have administered more than ONE MILLION COVID-19 vaccine doses.
Imagine what we could do if we had the supply. We are in a CRISIS. Pharmaceutical companies need to step up, so we can save lives and get our nation back on track. pic.twitter.com/w1meN8WPos

The Mayor has continually pointed to a need for an increased vaccine supply from the state and federal government to amp up distribution in NYC, as only about a week ago the city was in danger of completely running out.
