American People Should Be ‘Skeptical’ About the Vaccine, Says NY Gov Cuomo (Video)

“We’re going to put together our own group of doctors and medical experts to review the vaccine,” Cuomo says

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued words of caution to the American people about the coronavirus vaccine being developed under the Trump administration, saying people should be “skeptical” about taking it during a “Good Morning America” appearance on Monday.

Cuomo told “GMA” co-anchor George Stephanopoulos whether trusts the FDA to create a safe vaccine for COVID-19.

“First, how confident am I? I’m not that confident,” Cuomo said. “But my opinion doesn’t matter. I don’t believe the American people are that confident. You’re going to say to the American people now, here’s a vaccine, it was new, it was done quickly, but trust this federal administration, and their health administration, that it’s safe? And we’re not 100% sure of the consequences? I think it’s going to be a very skeptical American public about taking the vaccine, and they should be.”

Then the governor laid out how he plans to handle the vaccine in the state of New York.

“What I said I’m going to do in New York is we’re going to put together our own group of doctors and medical experts to review the vaccine and the efficacy and the protocol, and if they say it’s safe, then I’ll go to the people of New York and I’ll say it’s safe with that credibility,” he said. “But I believe all across the country you’re going to need someone other than this FDA and this CDC saying it’s safe.”
