As of Monday morning, 1.14 million first dose vaccinations have been given out in New York.

That is according to the governor’s office.

More than 74,000 first COVID-19 shots have been given out in the Capital Region.

Last week, the governor warned the state could run out of its supply of the vaccine by Friday. Over the weekend, his office said the state received an additional 250,000 doses last week to add to its supply.
