According to New York state officials, 81 people who received vaccinations at the state-run vaccination site at Jones Beach will need to be revaccinated due to temperature fluctuations with the vaccine.
Department of Health Commissioner Howard Zucker said less than a quarter of 1% of people vaccinated on that specific day were effected.
“This vaccine is very sensitive to temperature ranges – we knew exactly who it was, we contacted them, they will get revaccinated,” he said Monday.
Zucker said the ability to rectify the issue is a testament to the robust “checks and balances” system the state has.
Officials said nearly 1,400 people were vaccinated on the day the errant doses were administered.
