Gov. Kathy Hochul announced Tuesday that health care staff vaccination rates continue to rise throughout New York State, according to the latest data reported by health facilities to the Department of Health.
This new information comes as the vaccination mandate for healthcare professionals in hospitals and nursing homes is now in force.
“This new information shows that adhering to the vaccination mandate for healthcare professionals is simply the right thing to do to protect our vulnerable family members and their loved ones from COVID,” Hochul said. “I am pleased to see that health care workers are being vaccinated to keep New Yorkers safe, and I continue to monitor developments and am ready to take steps to address potential staff shortages in our health care systems.”
The proportion of nursing home staff who received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose rose to 92% on Monday evening, up from 71% on 24 August and 82% on 20 September.
The proportion of adult care staff receiving at least one vaccine dose of COVID-19 rose to 89% on Monday evening, up from 77% on 24 August and 85% on 20 September.
The proportion of hospital staff receiving at least one dose is 92% as of Monday night based on preliminary self-reported data. The proportion of fully vaccinated is 85% from Monday evening, up from 84% on 22 September and 77% on 24 August.
The Ministry of Health conducted a one-time study from the Health Electronic Response Data System (HERDS) of hospitals, nursing homes and adult facilities on September 27, 2021 to determine the vaccination status of health care workers. This is used to supplement the survey data that informs our website about the COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker Long Term Care Vaccinations website, which is updated daily with information self-reported by skilled nursing and adult facilities and our Vaccine Tracker Hospital Worker Vaccination website, which is updated weekly with information self-reported by the individual hospitals.
Below are vaccination rates for healthcare professionals in New York State, according to Hochul’s office.
