Separately, BoroPark24 reported that ParCare claimed that it received 3,500 doses of Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. The health provider’s CEO Gary Schlesinger told the news site that they already vaccinated hundreds of patients.
Schlesinger was also quoted saying, “You have to be on that list. Once you are on the list, we have to vet to make sure that you are either a healthcare worker, are over 60, or have underlying conditions. We will not give the vaccine to people who are not eligible for this first batch of the shots.”
