Medical institutions promised to vaccinate everyone who registers for vaccination via the Internet on the principle of “who is the first”
New York State Police are investigating coronavirus vaccine fraud.
This was reported by the press service of the state health department.
The police received information that the network of medical institutions Parcare illegally, most likely fraudulently, received a batch of drugs for vaccination against COVID-19. The medical network supplied them to all of its six hospitals and also offered them to private individuals.
“The Department of Health will assist the state police in the investigation of the criminal case. In case of proof of guilt, the participants in the fraudulent scheme will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” the statement said.
Medical institutions serve mainly representatives of the Jewish diaspora.
Gary Schlesinger, CEO of the network of clinics, openly stated that his institutions received 3,500 doses of Moderna vaccine. Parcare has pledged to give the vaccine to all citizens over 60 who register for vaccinations online on a who-first basis. This approach violates the vaccination plan, which requires health workers to get the vaccine first.
Earlier, Hungary began vaccination against COVID-19. The country was the first in the European Union to do so, the rest will be vaccinated from December 27.
Recall, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a permit for the use of the coronavirus vaccine by the American company Moderna under an accelerated emergency procedure.
