Here's the latest:

New York is expected to run out of all the COVID-19 vaccine that has been delivered to the state by Friday. Governor Andrew Cuomo revealed the dire status of the supply during his regular press briefing on January 22nd.

The shortfall will likely generate more confusion over when and where New Yorkers get vaccinated. New York City ended the week by temporarily closing 15 vaccination hubs, days after 23,000 appointments were canceled due to a shipment delay.

On Friday’s episode of The Brian Lehrer Show, Mayor Bill de Blasio questioned the state’s decision to hold up 65,000 shots, describing it as an “artificial reserve.” These doses are being held so people who’ve received their first shot can get their second on time.

If you’re feeling nervous about when you or a loved one might receive a vaccine, you’re not alone. A nationwide survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that nearly six in 10 adults feel the same way.

New York Shortfall

Only 28,000 doses remain out of the 1.3 million collected from the federal government since the nation’s vaccination campaign began on December 14. At first, the feds were delivering more doses than New York dolled out during a single week, allowing more time for regulators to sketch out where vaccines needed to land.

For the past three weeks, the regular allotment has been cut in half relative to original shipments. Now the state doesn’t have enough doses to cover the 80,000 people who are getting shots every day.

“We’re now going week to week,” Cuomo said meaning the state can only send out doses to its 1,200 providers as the federal deliveries, which will slow down distribution. To prevent cancellations, the governor says that providers should not schedule an appointment unless they’re sure an allocation is on the way.

Confusion reigns but spirits are high

The Kaiser Foundation Family is conducting a rolling survey of public attitudes and experiences with the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

Their latest edition, released January 22nd, found that Black and Hispanic adults were less likely to have enough information about where to get the vaccine. Nearly 70% of people in these groups felt uninformed versus 50% of white respondents.

A majority of adults—two-thirds—voiced overall confidence in the government efforts to distribute the vaccine, though again, minority groups were less likely to do so. A separate analysis by KFF, released Thursday, warned that large racial disparities are emerging among the 17 states that report the race and ethnicity of vaccine recipients.

In many of these states, Black and Hispanics are receiving a smaller share of vaccine, despite making up a larger portion of cases and deaths. New York has not publicly released its racial and ethnic data for its vaccine rollout.
