Over 850 Vaccines Discarded Since January

Over 850 Covid vaccines have been discarded this year for various reasons including the vials being cracked, expired, stopper denigrated in them, particles seen in them and more.

This was included in a reply to a Parliamentary Question in the House of Assembly today [July 2], with Minister of Health Kim Wilson providing the information in response to a question from Shadow Minister for National Security & Health Michael Dunkley.

One of the questions asked for the data for the “weekly number of Covid-19 vaccines discarded for any reason from the commencement of vaccinations to the week ending June 12th, 2021.”
