The Long Island high school science teacher has subsequently been arrested.
According to the Nassau Police Department in New York, 54-year-old Laura Park Russo injected the teenager with the vaccine despite reportedly having no medical qualifications to do so. Afterward, the boy went home and told his mother, who alerted authorities about Russo’s actions.
Arrest / Sea Cliff – The Sixth Squad reports the details of an Arrest for the Unauthorized Practice of a Profession that occurred on Friday, December 31, 2021 at 6:30 PM in Sea Cliff.
According to Detectives, defendant Laura Parker Russo, 54, of 55 Summit Avenue was at her home residence where she administered an injection of what is believed to be a Covid Vaccine to a 17-year-old male victim. The male victim went home and informed his mother what had occurred. The mother had not given permission or authority to have her son injected with a Covid Vaccine and called Police. After an investigation was conducted, it was discovered that defendant Laura Parker Russo is not a medical professional or authorized to administer vaccines and was placed under arrest without incident.
Defendant Laura Parker Russo is charged with New York State Education Law Unauthorized Practice of a Profession. She was released and issued an Appearance Ticket returnable to First District Court, located at 99 Main Street, Hempstead on Friday, January 21, 2022.
Russo, who worked at Herricks High School at the time of the incident, was arrested on New Year’s Eve. She was charged with unauthorized practice of a profession, which carries up to four years in prison if she’s convicted.
Superintendent Fino Celano of Herricks Public Schools told The Washington Post that Russo has been reprimanded for her actions.
“The individual in question is a district employee who has been removed from the classroom and reassigned pending the outcome of the investigation,” Celano said.
“As this is a matter of personnel, the district has no further comment,” he added.
Federal health authorities say proper vaccine administration by a trained medical professional is essential for safe and effective vaccination — with any vaccine. But this is especially true with the coronavirus vaccines because the messenger RNA technology requires specialized training, said Monica Gandhi, an infectious-disease expert at the University of California at San Francisco.
It is not clear which coronavirus vaccine the teen was given, but the Pfizer-BioNTech shot is the only one authorized for use in people younger than 18.
Although Gandhi said that, in general, coronavirus vaccines should be administered by healthcare professionals. Health-care professionals have to receive particular training to give intramuscular injections — or shots deep into the muscle — which is the technique these coronavirus vaccines require.
And because the mRNA vaccines require such cold temperatures and specialized handling, it is “quite tricky” to make sure it is done correctly so the mRNA technology does not break down, she said.
The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, for instance, must be stored at ultracold temperatures, thawed, mixed with the precise amount of saline for injection, and then administered within a narrow window of time. “There are very certain specific procedures to administer it. That’s my concern about someone who is not trained to giving a vaccine to a person,” Gandhi said.
I am glad to see the police made the arrest and now it’s up to the DA to do their job and ensure law and order is respected in their community, even by COVID fanitics.
