Wisconsin hospital employee 'intentionally' removed COVID-19 vaccine from refrigeration

一个 威斯康星州-based hospital on Wednesday said an employee who removed 57 vials of the Moderna 新冠病毒 疫苗 from the refrigerator earlier this week which resulted in 500 doses being discarded, acted intentionally.

在对福克斯新闻的声明中, Advocate Aurora Health said it was led to believe the act was an error, but the employee in questiontoday acknowledged that they intentionally removed the vaccine from refrigeration.

The employee is no longer with the company, it said.

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


Aurora officials initially said the employee at the Aurora Medical Center in Grafton forgot to put the vials back in refrigeration after removing them. Each vial contained 10 doses of the vaccine, according to local reports.

The former employee’s actions werea violation of our core valuesand have been reported to authorities for further investigation, 公司说.
