How Long Until New York City Gets Its Flu Vaccine?
“At-risk New Yorkers have been waiting in line for this vaccine for a long time,” said Maloney. “They ought to get the new doses as soon as possible, but at the very least they should know how much longer their wait will be. I hope Commission Crawford will explain the process for approving the incoming doses.”
Crawford appeared at a House Government Reform Committee hearing on November 17, at which time Maloney similarly questioned him about the process for getting these vaccines to New York. Crawford stated at the time that the FDA was awaiting the “pedigree information” on the lots of vaccine to ascertain where they have been, but that it would only take two or three days after that for FDA approval. Maloney wants to know the updated status.
