Yesterday, I called the Governor’s comments about halting covid vaccine distribution reckless, baseless, irresponsible and will cost New Yorkers’ lives. Those comments have been echoed by many across every political spectrum, yet more than 24 hours later, the Governor has failed to acknowledge his deadly mistake.

“While Americans from all political persuasions and walks of life were rejoicing the news of the Pfizer vaccine’s effectiveness and got a detailed look inside U.S. Army General Gustave Perna’s distribution operation, Andrew Cuomo was busy undermining and politicizing the most significant healthcare achievement in a century.

“He must immediately retract his statement and spend the coming days assuring New Yorkers that our finest-in-the world military is supremely capable of getting this vaccination distributed.”
