Maybe We'll Be Getting More

Last week, Matt Murell and Jack Mabb complained that Columbia County had only gotten 300 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Today, Governor Andrew Cuomo cited the Columbia County Department of Health as one of the best performers in administering the doses it had been allocated. The CCDOH was third on the list of "Best Performing," a list that was not arranged in alphabetical order. 

Cuomo said that this week, lower performing facilities will get less, and high performing facilities will get more. That would suggest that more will be allocated to the Columbia County Department of Health, the only facility in the county now administering the vaccine.

Cuomo also noted in his briefing this morning that the State of New York has, for the past two weeks, received only about 239,000 doses from the federal government. 

According to the chart above, allocations to the state are made on Tuesday. It seems that the county knows its allocation from the state on Tuesday as well. So, we shall see what tomorrow brings.
