Initially, it was thought that the nurse forgot to return the container of vaccines to the refrigerator, but he said that he did it on purpose.
In the American city of Milwaukee (Wisconsin), a nurse deliberately spoiled more than 500 doses of the Moderna coronavirus vaccine. This is stated in a statement issued by the network of medical centers Aurora Health Care, where he worked.
It is noted that he received containers with the drug from a special refrigerator and did not return them in a timely manner. As a result, 500 doses of the vaccine were rejected.
Initially, it was assumed that this was an вЂњunintentional mistakeвЂќ made by the employee, but later he вЂњ admitted that he deliberately took the vaccine out of the refrigeratorвЂќ.
As specified in Aurora Health Care, the specified employee was dismissed. No information is given about his motives. The network management reported the incident to the authorities for further investigation.
Recall that on December 18, the Moderna vaccine was approved for use in the United States. This was announced by President Donald Trump.
Earlier it was reported that in Germany, eight people accidentally received a five-fold dose of COVID-vaccine.
