A MEDICAL facility worker intentionally took destroyed 500 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine by removing over 50 vials of the Moderna drug from a pharmacy freezer.
The Aurora Medical Center in Wisconsin said they had fired a worker at their Grafton location for intentionally removing 57 vials of the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine from the freezer on Saturday.
“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 a statement.
“This was a violation of our core values, and the individual is no longer employed by us.”
Officials with the company said the worker admitted to removing the vaccine, with one saying they were “more than disappointed” with them.
The company’s statement came days after an initial review said the incident was the result of an “unintended human error.”
