The Geisinger Health Network is coming under fire from an AP report published in the Carlisle Sentinel on Wednesday that the health provider allowed employees’ family members to skip the COVID-19 vaccine line. The state health department rebuked the move saying the health care giant shouldn’t have held vaccine clinics for eligible family members of employees. Geisinger insisted it followed state guidelines for vaccine eligibility & administration & said “at no time were we informed that our vaccine program could be at risk.” It is unclear if members of the public lost out on appointments because of doses given to employee relatives.
