NY Gov Makes Vaccine Political: Cuomo Implores FDA Head Not To Rush COVID Vaccine, Invokes Trump

Cuomo Implores FDA Head Not To Rush COVID Vaccine

(Albany, NY) — New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is imploring the head of the FDA not to rush a COVID vaccine to the general public. The governor called on FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn to resist pressure from the White House to rush the vaccine, after unverified reports surfaced he might get fired. Cuomo said for doctors to totally lose credibility and become politicized during a pandemic is ludicrous. He added states will be responsible for administering a COVID vaccine and not local government.
