Jewish leader apologizes for wrongly administered vaccines


January 22, 2021

BERLIN (JTA) — The head of Austria’s Jewish community has apologized for COVID-19 vaccine doses that were administered to community members, including himself, who were not meant to receive them.

In a letter to the community released Monday, Oskar Deutsch said it was a “mistake” to have included nonpriority individuals in the vaccinations administered on Dec. 30 at the Maimonides Center, the Jewish community’s senior home.

It “should not have happened,” Deutsch said. “I myself was invited to receive an inoculation and didn’t refuse. That was a mistake and I apologize.”
