Lafayette coronavirus vaccine clinic shut down after complaint

A pop-up community clinic that vaccinated more than 600 people in Lafayette won’t be giving a second round of coronavirus shots after Contra Costa County health officials received a complaint alleging that vaccinations were given to people who shouldn’t have received them.

Dr. Rebecca Parish, a Lafayette internist who set up the community clinic at Stanley Middle School on Jan.16 and 17, confirmed that a doctor who volunteered at the clinic filed complaints with the county health department and the state Medical Board, which licenses and disciplines doctors.

Parish said she did nothing wrong and that she expects to be cleared of any wrongdoing within days.

“Everyone who received a vaccination, it was in accord with the Contra Costa County guidelines,” she said.

The county would not confirm that a complaint was filed against Parish, who runs a private practice called Comprehensive Wellness, or the pop-up clinic.

But Contra Costa Health Services officials said they had informed her that the vaccinations were to be given only to health care workers and people over 75.
