Removal of 500 doses of COVID-19 vaccine from Aurora Medical Center refrigerator was intentional


MILWAUKEE, #Wis. (WMTV) – The #Aurora #Medical #Center in #Grafton says the individual who removed more than 500 doses of the #Moderna COVID-19 vaccine admitted to doing so intentionally #Wednesday.

#Earlier this week the #Medical #Center says it was learned that 57 vials of the vaccine were removed from a pharmacy refrigerator overnight, and that an immediate internal review led investigators to believe the removal was caused by “inadvertent human error.”

#However, the individual in question admitted #Wednesday they had done so intentionally.

#Aurora #Medical #Center says authorities have been contacted and the incident is under further investigation.

“We are more than disappointed that this individual’s actions will result in a delay of more than 500 people receiving their vaccine,” the #Medical #Center said in a release #Wednesday. “This was a violation of our core values, and the individual is no longer employed by us.”

#Clinicians were still able to administer some of the vaccine from the vials within the allowable 12 hour post-refrigeration window.

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