Westchester continues to ramp up its vaccination program, with thousands more completing the series as the county recovers from the latest surge of the virus.

There have now been 223,878 vaccinations administered at the Westchester County Center, 53,976 at the Yonkers Armory, and 47,581 at Westchester County Department of Health sites as of Thursday, April 29, while officials said that Westchester is also teaming with local volunteer companies to continue its homebound vaccination program.

A total of 325,435 first and second doses have been administered in Westchester since the program began earlier this year.

According to Westchester County Executive George Latimer, more than 30 percent of Westchester's population has completed the vaccination series and the area is "trending better than the state." 

"The vaccine is the path in which we get through the pandemic," Latimer said, noting that younger people have been more reluctant to get their first shots. "A young person could get the virus and pass it along to other people. This is not a Westchester issue, it's a nationwide issue." 

Hospitalizations for COVID-19 continue to drop, down to 138 patients being treated for COVID-19 in county hospitals, though there were four new virus-related fatalities, bringing the death toll to 2,435 - 2,255 county residents - in Westchester since the pandemic began last year.

There are now 2,622 active COVID-19 cases in Westchester, down from more than 2,800 earlier in the week and 3,463 late last week.

Latimer also previously announced that Bicycle Sundays will return this summer through October with the exception of Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Labor Day weekends. However, all heritage festivals scheduled this summer at the Kensico Dam Plaza will be canceled, and the annual fireworks festivities will be called off for the second year in a row.

"Even as the variants are out there, we've seen a drop in cases," Latimer said. "We have gone through a long period of time changing our lifestyle, what we do, to be safe."
