Gov. Andrew Cuomo says recovering addicts in rehab facilities next in line for coronavirus vaccine

Remember back in March when New York City freed nearly 1,000 prisoners in order to prevent COVID-19 from being spread around the prison population? It wasn’t just New York City: Los Angeles, Houston, ICE, and more were announcing that they were letting people go rather than risk them spreading the virus while incarcerated.

A similar problem faces rehabilitation facilities, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo — the man who literally wrote the book on how to handle the COVID-19 pandemic — said Monday. “These are congregate facilities. Congregate facilities are problematic. That’s where you have a lot of people in concentration.”

Cuomo acknowledged that nursing homes are also packed with vulnerable people, but it looks like those in rehab will be getting the COVID-19 vaccine first:

The New York Post reports:

Recovering addicts in residential rehab facilities will be among those vaccinated against the coronavirus this week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo obliquely revealed Monday.

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.
