And they didn’t have to see their Long Island concierge doctor…

Daily Beast: People over 75 lined up for hours in Tennessee to get a chance at a COVID-19 vaccine only to find out that staff distributing the inoculations gave away doses to friends and family after telling hundreds who’d waited for hours that no more shots were available.

Reporters from WRCB-TV learned that staff at the Tennessee Riverpark vaccination center had phoned relatives and friends and told them vaccines were still available after the facility had turned away potential patients.

Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger said the incident was the result of a “miscalculation,” in which officials discovered they had more doses available only after turning patients away and sought to make use of them quickly before the vaccine thawed and spoiled.

  1. I still don’t understand why many of you are surprised this things happens. This one and toilet paper hoarding before are the better potion to awaken and see how is the current world.

  2. The mentality of scarcity has gone wild. Malthusian fear mongers are ruling US.
    Andrew Yangs campaign for POTUS is making more sense to me every day.
