Here's the latest:

The new director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed on Sunday that the federal government does not currently have enough COVID-19 doses for New York State. In a television interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, Dr. Rochelle Walensky admitted, "We don’t have as many doses as we would like now for states like New York and for other states that are claiming to have run out of vaccine."

Although Dr. Walensky expressed confidence that the government will get an increasing amount of vaccine supply by the end of March, she said the Biden administration had inherited a vaccine distribution debacle from his predecessor, Donald Trump. "One of the biggest problems we have now is I can't tell you how much vaccine we have," Dr. Walensky said. "And if I can't tell it to you, then I can't tell it to the governors and the state health officials. If they don't know how much vaccine they're getting, not just this week but next week and the week after, they can't plan."

President Joe Biden has pledged to administer 100 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine within the first 100 days of his presidency, but Dr. Walensky said she hopes that pace of vaccination will increase as more vaccines get approval from the FDA.

New York has around 159,000 first doses on hand out of about 1.3 million received from the federal government since the nation's vaccination campaign began on December 14th. With 80,000 doses administered a day, Melissa DeRosa, Secretary to Governor Andrew Cuomo, said supplies would deplete in two days. There's a separate stockpile for second doses and the federal program for long term care facilities.

Cuomo told reporters on Friday that the state is "now going week to week,” meaning the state can only send out doses to its 1,200 providers as the federal deliveries come in, which will slow down distribution.

The low supply of vaccines, which has led to mass cancellation of vaccination appointments in NYC, comes as COVID-19 continues to surge in NYC. Fifty-four ZIP codes in NYC currently have a positive COVID-19 testing rate of over 10%, up from late November, when 40 of NYC’s 177 zip codes saw positive test rates exceeding just 4%, the NY Post reports.
