Zach said the Ministry of Health has been informed of reports about the Parcare Community Health Network in Orange County.
The report stated that the network fraudulently obtained the dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in some way and transferred it to other agencies across the state, which violated state guidelines.
It is also worrying that the vaccine is reportedly provided in accordance with national regulations rather than first-line medical personnel or nursing home residents and staff.
Zach said: “We take this issue very seriously, and the Ministry of Health will assist the state police in a criminal investigation of this matter. Anyone found to have participated in the program will be held liable.
ABC has contacted the ParCare Community Health Network to comment; their website describes their work as “a multi-specialty center providing services such as primary care, internal medicine, dermatology, physical therapy and pediatrics; helping our patients stay the best Be healthy and prevent potential diseases.”
In October, New York-based Test and Trace Corps announced an expanded partnership with ParCare to provide free COVID-19 tests and resources to the Orthodox Jewish community.
