After much confusion over its initial statement, Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, New York says it made an error when it stated that President Paula-Mae Weekes received a covid19 vaccine at its facility on Tuesday.
The hospital, in updating its earlier statement, said President Weekes actually received a covid19 PCR test.
As stated in correspondence issued by the Office of the President on April 6th, President Weekes and her mother Phyllis Weekes both received their first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine at the Diego Martin Health Centre on that day.
On June 7, the public was advised in another statement that Weekes and her mother got their second doses at the Grand Stand, Queen’s Park Savannah.
However, on Tuesday, NYC Health + Hospitals/Kings County posted that it welcomed President Weekes to receive the covid19 vaccine.
It said, “Our hospital leadership team greeted President Weekes and company while she waited for her vaccine. Get vaccinated today.”
This was also posted on their Twitter and Facebook pages but was later deleted.
The President has returned to the country and is expected to host a news conference.
