The LA County Department of Health allows clinics to throw unused vaccines in trash rather than vaccinating thousands of residents who are desperate to get a shot and have made county leaders no. At least one of them was furious on a mission to resolve the policy frenzy.
LA County supervisors Janice Hahn It is responding to a story that TMZ broke last week, with clinics providing vaccines to health care workers today with 150 unused COVID vaccines, which are about to spoil … due to the large number of people who are registered. Not acting
Clinic – Inglewood Men’s Health Foundation – Contact someone not on the Priority List. But desperately need a vaccine, and these people Get the remaining volumeIncredibly, that’s an offense to County Health Dept, which said only people on the priority list should be vaccinated, even if the vaccine ended up in a different way in the trash.
We worked on the matter for 4 days and contacted back and forth with the Department of Health, who never gave us answers to our questions – it’s no better to sterilize non-compliant housing than injections. Is there a vaccine that is worth it in the bin? We have never received a formal answer to that question. But sources, pending a call with the health department, told us they decided not to pursue punishment against clinics simulating what the Men’s Health Foundation did. But that’s a terrible solution.
Here’s the problem … the policy continues to say that people who are not immunized cannot be vaccinated at this time, so clinics have been told it is wrong to vaccinate non-immigrant residents. Importance even if the vaccine is lost What’s worse, the health ministry has never publicly stated that they will not take action on these clinics, so the fear is that vaccines will be thrown into garbage.
Supervisor Hahn was furious and wanted the health agency to handle the program and clarify this crazy regulation … immediately.
The fact is that the department is led by Barbara FerrerThe vaccine was not fully prepared for the launch, and people in her department were furious. There are no real plans for vaccinations, although everyone has known for months that vaccines are on the horizon.
To be realistic … it challenges common sense to throw out these life-saving vaccines instead of creating a waiting list for everyone when there are unused vials that are no longer frozen and are about to spoil.
This could be a nationwide issue and needs to be resolved now … just like now.
