Executive Laura Curran is calling on the federal government to fix the supply
chain of the COVID-19 vaccine.
During a news conference this morning, the county said
it seems there are not enough shots to go around in Nassau.
“Unfortunately, NUMC, like other facilities
administering the vaccine here in the county, is facing a shortage of doses and
is waiting for shipments,” said Curran.
Curran says Nassau University Medical Center has thousands of vaccine
appointments scheduled through February, but the hospital will run out of shots
So far, NUMC has
vaccinated 4,500 staff members.
