ALBANY, NY- Governor Andrew Cuomo sent a letter to President Trump Thursday; requesting the commander-in-chief to reveal details of how a vaccine program will work.
The letter was released from the National Governors Association, which Cuomo heads. The letter calls on President Trump to arrange a meeting to discuss how a vaccination program would work and how the state and federal governments will collaborate.
“Dealing with COVID is not checkers, it’s chess,” the governor said during a conference call with reporters. “Let’s start to think ahead. We’re dealing with the fall, the next step is going to be dealing with a vaccine.”
The letter emphasizes how the states need guidance for when a vaccine becomes widely available and how state and federal governments will collaborate through that process.
