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.
