899 people got expired vaccine doses at New York City site


Nearly 900 people received expired Covid-19 vaccine doses at a Times Square vaccination site this month, health officials said Tuesday.

The 899 individuals who received doses of the Pfizer vaccine at the former NFL Experience building in Times Square between June 5 and 10 should schedule another Pfizer shot as soon as possible, the city Health Department said.

ATC Vaccination Services, the company that administered the shots under contract to the city, said in a statement, “We apologize for the inconvenience to those receiving the vaccine batch in question and want people first and foremost to know that we have been advised that there is no danger from the vaccine they received.”

A Health Department spokesman said people who got the expired doses have received e-mail alerts and phone calls, and are being sent a letter, to ensure they are aware of the situation.
