Coumo Says Addicts in Rehab are Next in Line for COVID-19 Vaccine

Coumo Says Addicts in Rehab are Next in Line for COVID-19 Vaccine

Meanwhile, Florida joins Texas in prioritizing older Americans in the next phase of vaccinations.

Last week, I noted that Texas bucked the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The new instructions said that “essential workers” should have priority over the elderly after the inclusion of racial justice factors in the “expert” assessment when determining who receives the coronavirus vaccine during the next phase of distribution.

The Lone Star state is moving ahead with vaccinations for older citizens next, in alignment with epidemiological practices designed to slow deaths and spread the pathogen.

Florida is now following the science as well.

Last week, Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida issued an executive order allocating vaccines to nursing-home residents and staff members, people 65 and older, medical workers, and anyone deemed “extremely vulnerable to COVID-19.” Texas did the same a few days prior, giving the green light for people 65 and older, along with those who have certain preexisting conditions, to start getting vaccinated.

…These decisions go against guidelines set by an advisory group at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC recommended that healthcare workers and nursing-home residents and staff members should be first in line, followed by other frontline workers and all people over 75. These recommendations, the group wrote, are meant to “preserve functioning of society” and “decrease death and serious disease as much as possible.”

But in Florida and Texas, younger frontline workers have been bumped out of the next phase of vaccinations.

“The problem is people that are 73, 74 would be in the back of the line for a young 21-year-old worker who’s considered ‘essential.’ That doesn’t, I think, make sense,” DeSantis said at a press conference on Wednesday.

I also predicted that blue states would be making a very different set of calculations. Indeed, this is the case.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that recovering addicts in residential rehab facilities would be among those next to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.

During a virtual news conference in Albany, Cuomo said the state was expecting to receive a combined 259,000 doses of Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines.

In addition to urgent care center employees and “individuals who are administering the COVID-19 vaccines, for obvious reasons,” Cuomo said that shots would be given to residents of “OASAS” — the state Office of Addiction Services and Supports.

The agency runs 12 treatment centers across the state, with five located in or around New York City, and also certifies and monitors “hundreds” of private facilities, according to its website.

“These are congregate facilities. Congregate facilities are problematic. That’s where you have a lot of people in concentration,” Cuomo said.

In my first post about race-based vaccine guidance, I explained that if the states were “laboratories of democracy,” we should soon see some solid data as to which approach is the most effective. Early results indicate that is the New York approach is full of fail.

The coronavirus pandemic appears to have been the icing on the case in terms of New York’s declining population, and it could impact the state’s political influence in future elections.

According to preliminary US Census Bureau data released on Tuesday, more than 126,000 people moved out of New York state between July 2019 and July 2020 — the biggest population drop of any state this year.

New York has been losing residents since 2016, according to the data, but this year was the most significant drop by far. The second biggest year-to-year population drop for the state this decade was between 2018 and 2019, when more than 80,000 people left the state.

On the other hand, Texas is slated to pick up 3 seats, and Florida 2 in Congress. At least the ability for Americans to vote with their feet has not been crippled.

Cuomo’s already counting all the Social Security benefits he’s saving for the feds. He’s scheming to get his bailout yet.

    Can Cuomo get it as 2nd man?

    Cuomo’s just honoring the Democrat 11th commandment: always cater to your core voter base.

Los Angeles County has declared that all county employees are a top priority, all 95,000 plus of them.

Yesterday Arizona ordered that all citizens ages 75 and up be moved to group 1B. They have been very aggressively taking care of nursing home residents and staffs.

Funny how Coumo didn’t have a problem earlier this year with the issues congregation facilities could incur (aka. nursing homes).

Horse$h!t! Addicts will contribute ZERO!

Don’t tell Cuomo his nipples rings are toxic.

Can’t wait till similar truth like this drops on top of him too.



This is as long as the patient consents, correct?

I can be in line for it, but decline it, yes?

The vaccine is suppose to lessen the severity and prevent death. So the smart move would be to immediately vaccinate the people who are most likely to die. Isn’t that the whole purpose.. to save lives?

“The problem is people that are 73, 74 would be in the back of the line for a young 21-year-old worker who’s considered ‘essential.’ That doesn’t, I think, make sense,” DeSantis said at a press conference on Wednesday

But it makes perfect sense. If your goal is to kill as many of the unproductive, non-tax paying base in your state then you’d do it that way. Save the young people who have decades of work and paying taxes ahead of them and eliminate the unproductive, non-tax paying elderly that are going to die soon in any case.

Cure to the perennial problem of an aging country. Set policy to encourage the death of the elderly and protect the young people. Yep, The Covid™ was a perfect gift to the democrats. Makes perfect sense.

They’re doing the missing 4th stage safety testing.

Cuomo… the man from Planned Parent/hood.

The idea of categorizing who is “essential” is sickening in itself, when one thinks about it.

    In the early day of the lockdowns, I was considered an essential worker as a CPA since I was tasked with filing legally mandated documents (tax returns). Lawyers were in the same class- required to file legally mandated documents (court filings)

    These are precisely the “government death squads” that prominent Democrats have been swearing up and down they would never engage in.

      henrybowman in reply to henrybowman. | December 31, 2020 at 8:05 am

      Excuse me, I meant to say, death panels. Death squads are something else entirely. Those are more like what showed up at the hair salon in another of today’s main stories.

Ok, then what about sex addicts and prostitutes? Shouldn’t they be next after rehab residents?

Someone who performs essential work is not necessarily an essential worker, nor is he vulnerable, nor does essential work put him at risk. Think of the healthy high school student who stocks grocery shelves.

In Texas, drug treatment on an outpatient basis is available for people who test positive for COVID-19.

Cuomo is sticking with the party platform. Old people don’t rate extraordinary medical treatment. Just palliative care.
