Urges Hesitant New Yorkers to Get Vaccinated

Yonkers State Assemblyman Nader Sayegh records a Public Service Announcement encouraging residents to get the COVID-19 vaccine at the NY State Mass Vaccination Site at the Yonkers National Guard Armory, March 3, 2021. He was vaccinated with the Moderna jab in February 2011.

YONKERS, NY – July 31, 2021 — New York State Assemblyman Nader Sayegh (D-Yonkers-AD-90) says he is in good spirits while under a seven-day quarantine after he tested positive for COVID-19.

“I was surprised. I was really shocked. Here I am, I am vaccinated, and I got COVID-19,” Sayegh said. Sayegh received the Moderna vaccine in February but said he is regularly tested as a precaution to protect his family and friends, Assembly staff, and constituents he meets.  He was tested for COVID after feeling a little under the weather and received a result he was not expecting, he tested positive. “This is something that for me was a wakeup call that you can never feel there are enough safeguards,” Sayegh said.

He is going public with his story, hoping it will encourage more hesitant New Yorkers to realize the COVID-19 Delta variant is, as reported by the CDC, far more contagious than earlier strains of the virus, and a serious health threat to those not vaccinated.

Assemblyman Nader Sayegh has been urging Yonkers residents to get vaccinated since last February, and cheered the opening of the NY State Mass Vaccination Clinic at the Yonkers Armory on March 3. Still, 44 percent of Yonkers residents are not vaccinated.

  1. U guys didn’t know? Nader can do whatever the f*** he wants

    Deltas, variants, waves, triple masks, no one gives a sh*t

    Listen.. here we go on 3 everyone, the sheep goes…

  2. Well, we knew that the delta variant was more than twice as contagious as the original strain. What we’ve learned this week is that it’s so contagious, when a fully vaccinated person gets a breakthrough infection, the levels of virus found in their nose is just as high as someone who hasn’t been vaccinated, meaning they can transmit and spread the virus. That’s a big deal, and it’s why the CDC is now advising the vaccinated to mask up indoors in public places.

    1. Oh my god! What are we going to do! It is possible to contract this disease that gives you the common cold, or no symptoms at all?! Oh my god vax up and add a booster shot!!

      Baaaaaaaaaaa

    1. Nader was vaccinated months ago… He unfortunately contracted Covid19 however the good news is that the vaccine works. The vaccinated do not get severe symptoms and avoid hospitalizations. So moral of the story is Nader was vaccinated and he is well. You Haters out there Stop the propaganda its not going to work. Nader get well my friend.

    1. Nader allows his office at Chicken Island to be used as a distribution point for a very large food pantry. Over 15,000 pounds of products a week. Him and Councilwoman Tasha Diaz run it. Nader doesn’t charge a dime for the space. That the type of person he is.

  3. Any symptoms or illness or was it just a positive test result. That would be important for all of us to know. Hope it’s not serious. Good health to you

  4. MASKS SHOULD BE STILL WORN INDOORS FOR VACCINATED AND UNVACCINATED UNTIL NEXT SPRING 2022. WE HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER NADER .

    1. WHY SHOULD VACCINATED PEOPLE WEAR MASKS INDOORS UNTIL SPRING 2022??? SOUNDS LIKE FOLLOW THE SCIENCE DR FAUCI/MSNBC JARGON…..SHEEP MENTALITY…..DO YOU WEAR A MASK WHEN YOU ARE ALONE IN YOUR CAR TOO?

    2. Wear one for the rest of your life sheepie. Some of us are going to move on.

      Pathetic imbeciles like you are the problem in society
