GRAFTON: In a shocking incident, a health worker deliberately broke more than 500 doses of coronavirus vaccine at a hospital in Wisconsin, USA.
In a statement, an official at Aurora Medical Center confirmed that 500 doses of coronavirus vaccine that should be discarded after being left unrefrigerated appear to have been deliberately pampered by an employee.
Aurora reported for the first time on Saturday about the pampered doses and said they were accidentally left overnight by an employee at their Grafton unit.
The medical center said late Wednesday that the employee involved “admitted today that he intentionally took the vaccine out of the refrigerator.”
Aurora said they fired the employee and referred the matter to the authorities for further investigation, Associated Press reported.
“We continue to believe that vaccination is our way out of the pandemic. We are more than disappointed that the actions of this individual will lead to a delay of over 500 people receiving the vaccine “, it is added in the communiqué
Aurora declined to provide further information, but said they would provide more details on Thursday.
