You can now sign up for unused doses of the COVID-19 vaccine that would otherwise be thrown out or given away randomly.
A New York-based start-up called Dr. B has launched to connect people with providers that have unused doses before they expire.
Creator Cyrus Massoumi told The Post, “Vaccine sites all over the country have experienced patients that were canceling or not showing up for their vaccine appointments 20 to 30 percent of the time, and what that resulted in was some vaccines going to waste.”
When a provider tells the system they have unused doses, it uses algorithms to first alert people who are at the highest priority in that location that there is a vaccine available.
