New York State’s vaccine czar is stepping down. The New York Times reports Larry Schwartz is unexpectedly leaving the post.

Schwartz has been one of the Gov. Cuomo’s most trusted advisers. He served as the governor's top aide for several years.

Schwartz came under fire last month after reports of him calling some county executives across the state as they waited for vaccine supply, and gauging their support for the governor who was facing growing sexual harassment allegations.
