Milwaukee’s Fox News affiliate reports:
More than 500 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine had to be “discarded” after they were removed from a pharmacy refrigerator at the Aurora Medical Center in Grafton on Saturday, Dec. 26 in an intentional act, officials said in an update Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Grafton police late Wednesday night confirmed the FBI and FDA are assisting with their investigation. On Wednesday, Aurora officials said “the individual in question” admitted to intentionally removing the vaccine — and authorities have been contacted. It was initially believed to be the result of “human error.”
The New York Post reports:
“We are more than disappointed that this individual’s actions will result in a delay of more than 500 people receiving their vaccine,” the company said in its statement. “This was a violation of our core values, and the individual is no longer employed by us.”
Local authorities have been made aware of the incident, the company said. Aurora Medical Center did not disclose a possible motive for the worker’s actions. The FBI and FDA were also involved in the investigation.
