Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today sent a letter to President Trump, CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar asking for clarity on why the federal administration is requiring states to provide identification numbers for anyone who wishes to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The Governor also asked the federal administration to affirmatively state that no personal identifiable information will be used for non-public health related purposes or provided to any non-public health agency such as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security or Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
