Rebound in Routine Childhood Vaccine Administration Following Decline During the COVID-19 Pandemic — New York City, March 1–June 27, 2020

A decrease in the number of vaccine doses administered in NYC was detected beginning the week of March 8, 2020, 1 week after the first COVID-19 case was confirmed in NYC. Those numbers declined further after the New York State on PAUSE Executive Order went into effect on March 22, which required New Yorkers to stay at home to reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Vaccine administration increased among persons aged <24 months starting the week of April 19–25, as the number of new COVID-19 cases declined,** and returned to levels comparable with those during 2019 beginning the week of May 17
