[زوكر]Said the Department of Health was informed of reports about[بركر]Community Health Network in Orange County.
Reports claim that the network somehow fraudulently obtained doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and transported them to other facilities across the state, in violation of state guidelines.
Also of concern is that vaccines were given to members of the public and not to frontline healthcare workers or nursing home residents and employees, as provided by the state.
“We are taking this matter very seriously and the Department of Health will assist the State Police in a criminal investigation into this matter,” Zucker said. “Anyone found to have knowingly participated in this scheme will be held accountable to the fullest extent permitted by law.”
ABC contacted ParCare Community Health Network for comment; Their site describes their work as “a multidisciplinary center providing services such as primary care, internal medicine, dermatology, physiotherapy and pediatrics; helping our patients maintain optimal health and prevent potential diseases.”
In October, the New York Test and Trace Corps announced an expanded partnership with ParCare, to provide free COVID-19 testing and resources to the Orthodox Jewish community.
