ALBANY, N.Y. – According to New York State vaccination data, the Mohawk Valley region is behind the rest of the state in administering the vaccine, with 70% total doses given so far.

The Mohawk Valley has the lowest vaccination rate in the state, and the Southern Tier has the highest at 97%.

The state data shows that between all county, state and hospital vaccination clinics, the Mohawk Valley has delivered 20,969 out of the 29,850 total doses received.

Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente says the county has stopped scheduling appointments past Thursday, because they will not have any more shots to give. Several local hospitals, including Mohawk Valley Health System and Rome Memorial Hospital ran out of shots last week.

According to the state website, appointments are also full at the SUNY Polytechnic Institute site in Marcy, and booked out through April 16.

It’s not clear where the nearly 9,000 remaining doses are, but this does indicate there is some availability to make appointments around the region at sites in other counties or hospitals. There could also be a number of vaccines set aside for second doses that will be administered in the coming weeks.

The state as a whole has distributed 79% of first doses and 77% of first and second doses. According to Gov. Cuomo, it is not clear when the state will receive more doses from the federal government.

All of the vaccination data will now be updated daily on the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker.

Below is the full breakdown of how many vaccines have been administered statewide to date:
