New York Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul told a church audience Sunday that God wants everyone to be vaccinated, and those who do not get COVID vaccines “aren’t listening to God and what God wants.”
“There’s people out there who aren’t listening to God and what God wants — you know this, you know who they are,” Hochul said. “I need you to be my apostles. I need you to go out and talk about it, and say ‘we owe this to each other, we love each other, Jesus taught us to love one another.’ And how do you show that love but to care about each other enough to say please get vaccinated.”
As of Monday, all health care workers at New York’s hospitals and nursing homes must be vaccinated or lose their jobs, according to a mandate former Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued last month.
