Pasadena To Reschedule Vaccinations After Line Jumpers Took Hundreds Of Appointments
Pasadena planned to hold its largest vaccination clinic yet on Thursday, but line jumpers forced the city to cancel.
Pasadena spokeswoman Lisa Derderian says a large group of media professionals got a hold of the registration link. Ineligible people booked more than 900 of the 1,500 available appointments.
Derderian says she found out from a reporter who received the link, and she's not surprised it got out there:
"It's not difficult to forward it to people, even though in big red letters and font it says 'DO NOT SHARE OR FORWARD.'
For now, she says there's no way to punish line jumpers. The city will reschedule shots for people with legitimate appointments.
