He couldn’t immunize himself against the controversies currently surrounding him, but on Wednesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo did get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Joined by friends and supporters on Wednesday, March 17, Cuomo received the one-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at Mount Neboh Baptist Church in Harlem, a pop-up site opened this week to address the racial and ethnic health disparities laid bare by the virus and the vaccine roll out. 

“COVID may be race-blind, ethnic-blind, but COVID found the inequity in our society and it exploited the inequity,” Cuomo said. “When it now comes to doing the vaccines, we have to correct for that.”
