The health department cites Philly Fighting COVID’s change in corporate status as the reason for the end in partnership.
Garrow called the changes troubling.
“The City has not been notified of any of these data having been sold. But for PFC to have made these changes without discussion with the City is extremely troubling. As a result of these concerns, along with PFC’s unexpected stoppage of testing operations, the Health Department has decided to stop providing vaccine to PFC,” added Garrow.
The health department is currently developing plans to shift future vaccine allocations to other providers.
It is also scheduling new clinics to ensure that people who were vaccinated at PFC’s clinics at the Convention Center can get their second dose.
