‘We blew it’: NYC’s COVID vaccine hubs are ghost towns

This mayor is an absolute joke. His incompetency will cost lives just as surely Cuomo’s already has. It’s not that the doses are not available. It’s not that there are no places to do the vaccines. It’s not that there aren’t people to administer them. It is simple, flat out, bureaucratic bungling and everyone associated with this debacle, from the mayor on down, should be fired and barred from ever holding position in government ever again. I have lived in NYC all my life and I have seen some terrible mayors but this guy is the absolute worst.

The city’s 15 vaccination hubs were ghost towns last Saturday, and the city Department of Health is refusing to reveal just how bad distribution went. One DOH staffer stationed at the Hillcrest High School hub in Queens on Jan. 30 said he did nothing all day. “You cannot imagine how much nothing it was,” he said of the demoralizing day. He said there were about 70 workers on hand — some earning overtime pay for 12-hour shifts — and about 10 people to vaccinate. The worker said several appeals were made to DOH officials to be able to vaccinate people without appointments, and they were denied. He said the hubs had about 400 to 700 doses. “We could have used that day to vaccinate thousands of people … and we just blew it,” he said
