The New York Post reports:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he will set up his own review board to double check any federally approved COVID-19 vaccine, citing his distrust of President Trump and calling Washington’s efforts to fast-track the drug “politicized” ahead of the November election
Raising concerns over the drug’s administration in New York, Cuomo argued Thursday that a second team of handpicked “experts” must also review the vaccine’s efficacy ahead of getting the green light in the Empire State.
This review committee will advise the governor on proper implementation, distribution, data collection and safety protocols, “so I can look at the camera and I can say to New Yorkers that it’s safe to take. I want to make sure that we know it’s safe to take,” Cuomo explained.
