BAYONNE, NJ - Despite assurances that there would be no charge, more than 200 residents who received their COVID-19 vaccines at Bayonne Medical Center received bills for the service in the mail.

“The third-party vendor mistakenly sent out invoices to a little more than 200 patients which is about 1% of the 22,000 that the CarePoint system vaccinated,” CarePoint officials said in a release.

“There was a systems error, and we will be sending out notices to those patients who received the invoices letting them know to disregard them,” CarePoint said. “Any patient who already paid the bill will be reimbursed in full.”
