Cuomo holds Javits Center event on COVID-19 vaccine progress – sans journalists

Governor Andrew Cuomo snubbed reporters Monday in his appearance at the Javits Center calling the 24 hour vaccination site a symbol of the beginning of the end of the COVID-19 pandemic in New York.

The event was streamed live off the Governor’s website, with pooled media access granted to the Associated Press. Other outlets, however, were barred “due to COVID-19 restrictions,” according to the Governor’s office.
