This is not the “experience” New Yorkers want.
The New York City Health Department sent out an emergency notice informing that 899 patients who received the COVID-19 vaccine at the pop-up COVID vaccination site in the former “NFL Experience” building in Times Square had erroneously been injected with expired Pfizer doses.
The operator of the pop-up site is ATC Vaccination Services.
The patients were told in the letter that they need to get another shot because the firm “cannot guarantee the effectiveness” of the doses they received.
“We are contacting you concerning the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine you received at Times Square – NFL Experience vaccination site on June 5 to June 10, 2021. It was recognized after the vaccine was administered, that it had been in the freezer beyond the approved time frame prior to it being administered,” David Savitsky said in an email to patients.
A dad of two teen daughters who were given the faulty shots last week was left fuming after getting the email and a phone call from ATC Vaccination Services about the mix up.
