Wild weather across the country delayed COVID-19 vaccinations in New York City by a week, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday.
Weather snafus delayed shipments — leaving the city “down to fewer than a thousand first doses left for the entire city of New York” at one point, Hizzoner noted.
“We’ve basically lost a full week in our vaccination efforts,” he said at a press briefing.
“We’re getting now, finally, the supply we expected last week we’re getting today.”
“This week’s shipments are coming by the end of the week,” he added.
The city will be receiving about 170,000 first doses each week for the next two to three weeks, officials said — returning to roughly the level before the weather problems.
Last week, amid the supply hold-ups, the state reported landing only 142,575 total first and second doses for all New Yorkers.
There will hopefully be an increase in supply by the end of March into April, said city Health Commissioner Dave Chokshi.
