From Fox News:
For one New York-based single mother of young children, who suffers from respiratory problems, Christmas came early when she learned through word-of-mouth that – despite conflicting information as to who was eligible to receive the coronavirus vaccine – her underlying condition meant she could indeed be inoculated at a Brooklyn-based health clinic.
“I was so relieved and grateful,” the mother and working professional, who requested anonymity for privacy reasons, told Fox News. “And shocked I could get it already.”
A week ago, she filled out a brief form online and was later informed that she had an appointment at a ParCare clinic in Brooklyn for Tuesday, the very same week that Moderna was shipping its highly anticipated vaccines across the country.
“It all seemed normal, no different than going to any other urgent care and everything was by the book,” the woman, who got the jab almost a week ago, continued, explaining that the clinic took some medical insurances for the shot, but not hers, charging her $150 out of pocket. “But the doctor didn’t ask me which box I checked on form or why I qualified for the vaccine.”
Word had spread in the days leading up to the Moderna rollout that the prominent ParCare clinic was authorized to administer the shot.
“The vaccines will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis,” the company’s ad read. “We have set up a special system where you can reserve your slot.”
The advertisement urged New Yorkers to go to parcarevaccine.com to submit information or scan the barcode featured on its posters.

'ROUTINE ERROR': 6,700 North Carolina Residents ‘Incorrectly Told They Have Coronavirus’ via Text
Nearly 7,000 residents in North Carolina were told via text message last week that they tested positive for the Coronavirus despite not actually having contracted the disease.
“More than 6,700 individuals in Mecklenburg County in North Carolina were told in a text message sent from Mecklenburg County Health Department on Friday that they tested positive for COVID-19 and over 500 people were told through a county email that they were also infected with the novel coronavirus. But the results were incorrect due to a technical error by Health Space, the company they use for contact tracing, according to a statement on the county’s website,” reports Fox News.
“An error during routine maintenance last Friday resulted in a county data vendor sending erroneous texts and email messages to people saying they were positive for COVID-19,” the statement on the county website said.
“Very quickly we began to work with the vendor to understand the issue and make sure that it did not continue. Once corrected we were told that 6,727 text messages and 541 emails were sent to individuals who were already in their system. We then worked with the vendor to send a corrected text/email to all that received the erroneous one,” the email stated in part.
