Rep. Reed hopeful that FEMA, National Guard will take over vaccine distribution in NYS

Congressman Tom Reed says he wants to see FEMA take over COVID vaccine distribution in New York.

His frustration with the rollout of the vaccine program is not unique, as critics of Gov. Andrew Cuomo have been loud over the last several weeks.

“You have an antiquated system that has not been maintained or kept up to date,” Reed said to Finger Lakes News Radio. “They didn’t kick the tires appropriately because they knew the vaccine was coming.”

He hopes that FEMA and the National Guard will take over distribution at the federal level.
