New York Police and the New York State Department of Health are investigating the Parcare Community Health Network, claiming that it may have used Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine “fraudulently.”
Parcare may “fraudulently obtained the COVID-19 vaccine, violating state guidelines, transferring it to facilities in other parts of the state, and transferring it to the public, which is contrary to the state’s plan to first manage it with frontline medical staff. , And the residents and staff of nursing homes.” New York Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker said Saturday.
On Monday, ParCare CEO and President Gary Schlesinger told BoroPark24 that its clinic is reviewing people who have registered for the vaccine to ensure that they “are medical workers, are over 60 years old, and still have underlying diseases.”
There is a criminal investigation into the matter.
Last week, at least 89,000 New Yorkers received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
