Hundreds of New Yorkers have been told their covid shots were defective

Nearly 900 New York City residents have been informed that they were jabbed with a “defective” Covid-19 vaccine and therefore would need an additional dose

The “expired” vaccinations were given out between 5 June to 10 June at a the vaccination clinic at the NFL Experience in Manhattan’s Times Square. The location is able to perform 1,500 jabs when at maximum capacity for over 12 hours a day, between 7.30am and 7.30pm.

However, the company behind the site, ATC Vaccination Services, told 8,999 people that they were required to have another shot before they could be considered fully vaccinated as the shots they got were believed to be ineffective due to improper storing.

According to the CDC, the particular vaccine they used can only be kept in the freezer for two weeks. https://news.yahoo.com/news/hundreds-yorkers-told-covid-shots-144348053.html. ( I think the 3rd paragraph has. Typo by Yahoo - it should be 899)

1. That sucks, but I give it to the place for coming clean about the

mistake. I bet they are not the only place to store improperly, and I bet some of them are hiding it.
