At hospitals affiliated with NYU, Columbia, Harvard and Vanderbilt, 20- and 30-something grad students, IT and billing staff and administrators (none of whom see patients) have been vaccinated ahead of the elderly and other high-risk populations 1/x nytimes.com/2021/01/10/hea…

The intent was that academic medical centers would be partners in the rollout to phase 1a groups, stewards of doses to be given to their _qualifying_ staff and to other 1a groups in their communities. It's clear that in many cases that message was ignored. nytimes.com/2021/01/10/hea…

Important @apoorva_nyc piece. Highlights bigger issue Hospitals rightly prioritized for vaccines because of front-line workers: nurses, doctors, staff But many vaccinating non-front-line staff, administrators, even wealthy donors on their Board Thread nytimes.com/2021/01/10/hea…

We need to push hard to get to where we are vaccinating 10X the number of people than now - the slop around the edges of vaccination plan execution is not the story, NYT. nytimes.com/2021/01/10/hea…

This excellent reporting by @apoorva_nyc comes as no surprise. We knew this would happen. Vaccine guidelines may come from up high, but allocation decisions are made in the trenches by human beings with human foibles. nytimes.com/2021/01/10/hea…

Yet, pp at high risk like those w/ cancer are left to wait. “20-something who works on computers. Young researcher who studies cancer. Technicians in basic research labs. These are some of the thousands of pp who have been immunized against the virus” nytimes.com/2021/01/10/hea…

An important look at privilege in the vaccine line by ⁦@apoorva_nyc⁩ @NYTimes. One can only wonder if the confusion and missteps in this complicated rollout would be so high if there had been real leadership at the very top of government? 🤔 nytimes.com/2021/01/10/hea…

This is so frustrating. Hospitals should be vaccinating their high risk patients when they have excess vaccines, not young staff who have no patient facing duties. Just have a list of patients willing to come in with moments notice. nytimes.com/2021/01/10/hea…

Thanks to @Apoorva_NYC. Misappropriation of #covid19 #vaccine through “cronyism and connections" is a violation of #humanrights. Prisoners in New York State prisons @NYSDOCCS do not have access to vaccination. @HealthNYGov @NYGovCuomo nytimes.com/2021/01/10/hea…

Grad students, faculty at big med schools who might get early vaccine access even if they don't see patients or qualify. This is an issue of planning on the part of the school, the govt, etc. I don't blame the people who got it. nytimes.com/2021/01/10/hea…

Mark D. Levine @MarkLevineNYC - Sun Jan 10
Yes it's true, hospitals' excess doses should have gone to elderly patients ahead of young, healthy workers. But the biggest scandal in vaccination now is not that the wrong people are getting shots. It's the too few people are getting shots at all. nytimes.com/2021/01/10/hea…

1/ Many hospital workers who shouldn’t be high-priority, such as young grad students who don’t see patients or work on #COVID19 research, are getting vaccinated ahead of more at-risk groups, as @apoorva_nyc reports. nyti.ms/3braNzK
