Brooklyn clinic says it returned COVID-19 vaccines amid probe

A Brooklyn-based health care company said Sunday that it “proactively returned” its remaining stash of COVID-19 vaccines amid a criminal probe into allegations the doses were fraudulently obtained and diverted.

In a prepared statement, ParCare Community Health Network also insisted it followed all proper procedures to get the Moderna vaccines and was approved to administer the shots by both the state Department of Health and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The company said it “provided the documentation regarding the proper receipt of the vaccines to the NYS DOH.”

“In an effort to fully cooperate with NYS DOH, ParCare has proactively returned its vaccines pending the Department’s review,” according to the statement.

“We are confident the end result of that review will show that ParCare at all times exerted best efforts to comply with all NYS DOH requirements and will allow us to continue to achieve our number one goal of providing these critical vaccines to the New Yorkers who need them most.”

A company spokesperson said ParCare had administered 869 of 2,300 doses it received through an order placed by the DOH, and had handed over the remainder to the state.

A copy of a packing slip provided to The Post shows the vaccines were shipped directly to ParCare in Monroe, N.Y., from a McKesson pharmaceutical-supply warehouse in Shepherdsville, Ky.

The Moderna vaccine is designed to be administered in two doses 28 days apart.

ParCare said, “We will do everything in our power to make sure that the state understands that our patients are our priority and that everyone receives their second dose accordingly.”

On Saturday, state Health Department Commissioner Howard Zucker said the New York State Police was investigating allegations that ParCare “may have fraudulently obtained COVID-19 vaccine, transferred it to facilities in other parts of the state in violation of state guidelines and diverted it to members of the public.”

Zucker’s statement said the investigation involved ParCare’s clinic in Orange County, which is one of six it operates.

The others are located in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

New York state guidelines call for the first round of vaccines to go to front-line health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities.

ParCare CEO Gary Schlesinger reportedly told BoroPark24 website that the company was giving shots to people who were “either a healthcare worker, are over 60 or have underlying conditions.”

A since-removed photo on Twitter, posted by the Rabbinical Alliance of America on Tuesday, showed Schlesinger receiving one of the highly coveted shots himself.

The state DOH didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

Michael Novakhov – SharedNewsLinks℠: Barr Pans Trump’s Coup Schemes in Final Press Conference

Attorney General William Barr, in what was likely his final press conference before stepping down later this week, made it clear on Monday that he doesn’t support some of the outlandish post-election plans currently backed by President Trump. Barr explained that he still saw no reason to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate alleged voter fraud in the 2020 election, nor one to investigate President-elect Biden’s son Hunter, who is under federal investigation for tax matters. He also said he didn’t believe there was any basis for the federal government to seize voting machines, as crank lawyer Sydney Powell reportedly urged Trump to do in an Oval Office meeting with disgraced ex-national security advisor Michael Flynn.

“I have not seen a reason to appoint a special counsel, and I have no plan to do so before I leave,” Barr said about the ongoing investigation into Hunter Biden, which he said was already “being handled responsibly and professionally” by the Justice Department.

Barr also reiterated his previous comments, made earlier this month, dismissing the need for a special counsel to investigate alleged voter fraud. “If I thought a special counsel at this stage was the right tool and was appropriate, I would name one, but I haven’t and I’m not going to,” he said on Monday. Barr did a fair amount of scaremongering about voter fraud prior to the election but said afterward that the DOJ had found no evidence of systemic voter fraud that could have had an impact on the outcome. In fact, there is virtually no evidence of any voter fraud, anywhere, in the 2020 election.

Regarding the voting-machine gambit, Barr said, “I see no basis now for seizing machines by the federal government, you know, a wholesale seizure of machines by the federal government.”

There is no reason to believe that Barr’s exit-door comments will dissuade or prevent Trump from trying these types of high jinks between now and Inauguration Day, but the comments will nonetheless hang in the air as Barr’s successor, Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen, takes over the DOJ.

Barr also contradicted the president’s claim that China, not Russia, might have behind a recent large-scale hack of federal agencies and American companies. “It appears to be the Russians,” said Barr, echoing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s recent statement on the matter.

To be clear, as Intelligencer’s Jonathan Chait has repeatedly underlined, Barr’s public skepticism on these issues and his unwillingness to entertain the president’s coup-fancying do not make him some noble guardian of America’s democracy. He’s just a reality-tethered Trump ally who has already gotten in his many unethical licks and now understands it’s time to move on. But regardless, it’s still undoubtedly better that he said something, rather than nothing, on his way out the door.
