Moderna COVID-19 vaccines at Grafton location were “intentionally removed, not due to human error”


GREEN BAY, #Wis. (WBAY) – #Aurora #Medical #Center officials say an employee is no longer with the company after an investigation revealed the employee acknowledged they intentionally left out dozens of vials of #Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine overnight at the #Grafton, #Wisconsin location.

#According to a release sent out early #Wednesday evening, #Advocate #Aurora #Health officials say an internal review was immediately launched after learning of the incident earlier this week, and they were led to believe it was caused by human error. #However, officials now say the person in question acknowledged #Wednesday that the vaccine was intentionally removed from a pharmacy refrigerator.

#Company officials say they have notified authorities for further investigation, saying they are “more than disappointed that this individual’s actions will result in a delay of more than 500 people receiving their vaccine.”

#Once the vaccine is thawed, it cannot be refrozen.

#In addition, #Aurora officials say they continue to believe that vaccination is the way out of the pandemic, and the action was a violation of their core values.

A previous report stated that 50 vials were left out when an employee removed them from a refrigerator to access other items and failed to put them back overnight on #Friday.

#However, company officials have increased that number to 57, saying that resulted in more than 500 doses of the vaccine being discarded.

The employee wasn’t identified by #Aurora officials.
