More Moderna Vaccine Doses Suspended Over Contamination Risk In Japan

Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine contamination problems intensified in Japan over the weekend. Two people died after getting shots from a batch flagged for contamination risk, and another million doses were temporarily suspended. About 1.6 million doses were suspended last week, so the latest developments meant that the total supply now affected is 2.6 million doses. The latest reports of vaccine contamination were in Gunma prefecture near Tokyo and the southern prefecture of Okinawa. Black substances were found in isolated Moderna vaccine vials and syringes. Japan’s health ministry is investigating the deaths, but they have not yet been linked to the vaccines or possible contamination. [ReutersCNN]
