According to numbers out of Governor Cuomo's office on Tuesday, the Mohawk Valley region is the lowest performing in the state, when it comes to vaccinating its citizens, having only administered slightly more than half the vaccines it's received.

"When they put us at 57%, it's out of my hands and out of my control because we've been doing 100% so I don't know where their numbers are, I don't know what data points they're using," says Oneida County Executive, Anthony Picente.

According to officials in Montgomery County, they're getting 200 doses this week and will immediately administer them. Herkimer County is getting 100 does of the Covid vaccine this week, while Otsego County is expecting 300. Oneida County is expecting 500. Numbers released by the governor's office Tuesday show nearly 23,000 yet-to-be-administered doses of the vaccine in the Mohawk Valley region.

"I don't know where they are. They must be up at SUNY. They're controlling the game right now, here at least in Oneida County and I have to assume around the other counties," says Picente. "Nobody's sitting on these. There's no reason to sit on vaccines and it's evident no one is sitting on them, so, where are they?"
