New York state is set to receive its first batch of COVID-19 vaccines on Dec. 15, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday. That delivery, which is pending “safety and efficacy approvals,” will include enough doses of Pfizer’s vaccine to vaccinate 170,000 New Yorkers, Cuomo said.

The state is expected to receive additional vaccine shipments from both Pfizer and Moderna later in the month, he said.

Seventy-five to 80 percent of the general population must get vaccinated for the COVID-19 vaccine to be “most effective” he noted. The first doses the state receives will go to frontline health care workers, as well as nursing home residents and staff.



  1. But wait! I thought the degenerate adulterous loser said New York wouldn’t be getting it! Obviously he is not part of the decision or engaged with the pandemic response at all.
    He was right about one thing, after the election we wouldn’t hear about covid, FROM HIM!!

  2. Beware! These are not vaccines but a gene-altering technology that has never been used on humans before. Only in very high risk cases one may justify being injected with this poison. At least the Russian vaccine is a vaccine (or a scam), but at least it is not changing the make up of your body. Only a madman would take it.

  3. @rt:
    The very honorable current president said what you reference… in direct response to the insinuation of the murderous dictator, Andrew Cuomo, that he would not, for whatever insane reason of his own, accept the vaccine in NY. But yes, I can understand how never-Trumpers like yourself would desire to skew the facts.
    FOUR MORE YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RELEASE THE KRAKEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
