Cuomo Credits his Earlier COVID Policy for
NY Nursing Homes Now Needing
Far Fewer COVID Vaccinations

Andrew Cuomo.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – On Wednesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that, as COVID-19 vaccinations become available, his office would give priority to the elderly in nursing homes. He then praised his earlier COVID nursing home policies for reducing the number of vaccinations nursing homes now require.

“Our first priority will be to send New York nursing homes 80,000 doses of the COVID vaccine,” stated Cuomo. “If it wasn’t for our earlier policies, they would have needed 90,000. That means we now have 10,000 doses for other people.”

This past spring, Cuomo established a policy that essentially forced nursing homes to admit patients who were infected with COVID-19. Afterwards, between 6500 and 10,000 residents of nursing homes died of COVID.

Many in the media praise Cuomo for his "wise" policies that freed-up those 10,000 doses. However, Cuomo humbly dismisses the adulation, claiming, “Having foresight is all part of being governor”.
