According to NBC, a biology instructor in Nassau County, New York, was arrested on December 31 for giving a single dosage of Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine to a 17-year-old boy.
According to a civic notice issued by the Nassau County Police Department (NCPD), defendant Laura Parker Russo, 54, injected a 17-year-old male with COVID-19 vaccination.
Upon returning home, the male victim informed his mother of the incident. The mother had not granted consent or authority for her son to be injected with a COVID Vaccine and had contacted the NCPD," the NCPD stated in a statement.
Laura Parker Russo, according to law authorities, is neither a licensed medical professional nor allowed to deliver vaccines.
She was then charged with the unlawful practice of a profession by the NCPD.
Vaccination with the J&J vaccine is only permitted for those over the age of eighteen, according to the FDA.
