Gov. Cuomo Threatens to Stop Vaccine Distribution

Pfizer announced Monday that its COVID-19 vaccine is found “to be more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19 in participants without evidence of prior SARS-CoV-2 infection in the first interim efficacy analysis.” That’s good news. Great, really. Not so fast, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo warns.

While speaking to political partisan George Stephanopoulos — what a combo — Cuomo said the news is “bad” and that he will need to figure out a way to stop distribution before it does damage.

Here is Cuomo putting politics ahead of the country:

“The bad news is that it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan,” Cuomo starts. “The vaccine plan is very important. It’s probably the most ambitious undertaking since COVID began.

“The Trump administration is rolling out the vaccination plan, and I believe it’s flawed.”

Cuomo concluded, “I’ve been talking to governors across the nation about that – how can we shape the Trump administration vaccine plan to fix it or stop it before it does damage.”

Despite the expected push back from Cuomo — who like Gavin Newsom, handles most problems badly — this is undoubtedly a major win for the Trump administration. It would have been fascinating to know the impact the news would have had if it come out before last week’s election, when COVID-19 was a deciding factor in voting.

No word yet on what New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s brother thinks of the news.
