NY healthcare provider suspected of illegally acquiring, dispensing COVID-19 vaccine


ParCare Community Health Network is recognized by the state as a supplier in Orange County.

"The vaccine is a valuable commodity and you have many people who want the vaccine", he explained.

Andrew Cuomo revealed Monday that the office of the state's attorney general will be investigating whether a health care clinic operating within the Empire State fraudulently obtained and distributed doses of a COVID-19 vaccine to the general public.

Monday, the governor announced an executive order cracking down on providers not following the priority population process in administering the vaccine, fining violators up to $1 million and revoking all licenses.

The majority of the vaccines have been given back to the state as a criminal investigation is underway. "But that's on the percent of hospitalized positivity", Cuomo said. That individual additionally gave Rozner the email from the state health department allotting 2,300 dosages, and a pressing slip sending the Moderna vaccine shipments to its Monroe, New York area.

"We are very serious about this", he said. "We will find out, and it's not worth risking your license, as well as a possible civil and criminal penalty".

The Buffalo Bills and New York State are continuing to work on a plan to allow fans in the stadium this January for playoff football.

To date, roughly 140,000 New Yorkers have received the first shot of the two-part vaccines.

Now, ParCare could be facing up to a $1 million fine and license revocation of all NY state licenses if it is found guilty of vaccine fraud, according to Gov. Cuomo's new executive order. ParCare also shared the pictures of the vaccine on their Twitter handle a week later which stated that the company has received thousands of doses of the coronavirus vaccine.

Notably, the NYSDOH had been rationing vaccine doses due to its momentarily short supplies.

NY state Health Commissioner Howard Zucker says the state was misled and that ParCare was not qualified to receive the doses.
