ORANGETOWN, N.Y. -- Some 151 Pfizer employees will find themselves without a job this fall as the company finishes its work on vaccine production at the Pearl River campus, according to lohud.com.

According to a statement from the company released on Monday, about 50 employees will remain to finish work until the end of the year.

The layoffs will take place beginning Aug. 20 and continue until Oct. 28, said lohud.com.

The layoffs are part of the company's earlier announcement that it planned to stop vaccine manufacturing in Pearl River, added lohud.com.

In November 2015, Pfizer sold 200 acres of its property to Industrial Realty Group, which plans to bring a mix of science and technology-related businesses as well as retail businesses.
