Cuomo says to get vaxxed so you don’t kill Granny — amid his own nursing-home scandal

Now he cares about the elderly catching COVID-19.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo — whose administration infamously ordered the state’s nursing homes to accept coronavirus-stricken patients at the height of the pandemic last year — tried to guilt young people Monday into getting vaccinated by warning they could kill their grandparents if they don’t.

“There is an attitude that they’ll be fine, why should they take the vaccine?” the governor said at a press briefing, referring to young people.

“My argument is, yeah, maybe you’ll be fine, and by the way, you don’t know that either,’’ the governor said. “Maybe you will get a long-haul syndrome that we’re not really be sure what it is yet but a lingering consequence of COVID.

“Or maybe you’ll go home and kiss your grandmother and wind up killing your grandmother. So show some civic responsibility,’’ Cuomo said.

His comments come just over a year after the state Health Department’s controversial edict that sent nursing-home residents who tested positive for the virus back to the facilities — even though the elderly are among the most vulnerable to COVID-19.

Cuomo and his aides are accused of then lying about the number of nursing-home residents who died from COVID-19 to try to hide the alleged link — a scandal that is now at the center of state and federal probes.
