Japan suspends 1.63M doses of Moderna over contamination – Tampa, Florida

Tampa, Florida 2021-08-26 02:35:30 –

Japan has stopped using the Moderna vaccine for about 1.63 million doses due to contamination found in unused vials.

The Ministry of Health said pollution was reported at multiple vaccination sites.

Some doses may have been given, but no adverse health effects have been reported.

The dose was produced in Spain.

Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited, a Japanese distributor, has suspended doses produced on the same production line as a precautionary measure and asked Moderna to investigate the problem.

The suspension raises the prospect of supply problems in Japan, which relies on three foreign-developed vaccines for the COVID-19 vaccination campaign.
