ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Despite Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s warning that New York was about to exhaust its coronavirus vaccine supply, the state isn't running on empty. Cuomo said the state had only around 28,000 doses left for people getting their first shot. But that referred to how much vaccine was available out of the stockpile of first doses the state had at the week’s start. Cuomo wasn’t including nearly a quarter-million doses from new shipments or hundreds of thousands of doses being distributed to nursing homes through a federal program. And he also wasn’t including a big stockpile reserved for people getting the second of two shots.
