In the US, millions of doses of the COVID vaccine will be destroyed

The manufacturer of the COVID-19 vaccine, Johnson & Johnson, will destroy millions of doses of the drug that are unusable.

Due to an error at the Baltimore plant, several batches may be unusable, the FDA said. Neither the agency nor the manufacturer has said how much of the vaccine is in question, but as informed sources told The New York Times, 60 million doses will be destroyed.

Following the United States, Canada announced the refusal to use 300 thousand doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine produced in Baltimore.

“Due to the concerns raised, Health Canada will not distribute the received batches of the vaccine in order to protect the health and safety of Canadians,” the department said in a statement.
