SUGAR LAND, Texas – It takes only seconds for Dr. Hasan Gokal to recall the last COVID-19 vaccine he administered.

“Yeah, the last vaccine was to my wife,” Gokal said.

Gokal sat down with KPRC 2 Investigates reporter Mario Diaz on Tuesday for a lengthy interview about the chain of events that started at a Harris County vaccination site on Dec. 29.

“Don’t criminalize a physician for making a judgment based on their training,” said Gokal.

The 48-year-old is referencing the potential criminal case he is facing, admitting that he was uncertain as to why he is in this position in the first place.

“I’m not sure, Mario, what I did wrong that someone can tell me,” Gokal said.

The accusations that Gokal stole coronavirus vaccine has generated global headlines. He claims the vaccines were going to expire, but instead they ended up in arms connected to him.

“‘I’ve got a few of these left,’” Gokal said he explained to a colleague. “‘I’m going to try and find people to give them to,’ and his response was, ‘OK.’”
