Police probe deliberate spoiling of 500 COVID vaccine doses


#Police and federal authorities were investigating after a #Wisconsin health system said an employee admitted to deliberately spoiling 500 doses of COVID-19 vaccine.

#Aurora #Medical #Center in #Grafton, #Wis., first reported that the doses had been spoiled #Saturday, saying they had been accidentally left unrefrigerated overnight by an employee. #But the health system said #Wednesday that the doses now appeared to have been deliberately spoiled.

#Police in #Grafton, which is about 20 miles north of #Milwaukee, said in a statement that the department, FBI and #Food and #Drug #Administration were “actively” investigating the case. #Police said they were notified of the alleged tampering #Wednesday night. They said #Thursday morning that no other information would be immediately released and declined to say if any arrests had been made.

#In a statement late #Wednesday, #Aurora said the employee involved “acknowledged that they intentionally removed the vaccine from refrigeration.”

#Aurora said it had fired the employee and referred the matter to the authorities. The statement said nothing about a possible motive for the spoilage.

“We continue to believe that vaccination is our way out of the pandemic. #We are more than disappointed that this individual’s actions will result in a delay of more than 500 people receiving their vaccine,” the statement said.

#Aurora said it would provide more information on #Thursday.
