Citing Scriptures from Matthew and Galatians in the Bible’s New Testament, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo vowed to wary members of one of New York City’s most storied black megachurches that he will not take the coronavirus vaccine until it’s available to “black, Hispanic and poor communities.”
In a pre-recorded message delivered Sunday at Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, led by Rev. Calvin Butts III, Cuomo said even though as a public official he is a priority candidate to receive the vaccine and would love to take it, he won’t take his shot until it is also available to black, Hispanic and poor communities as part of his commitment to “social and racial justice.”
