NYT: 62 million more Johnson Johnson’s vaccine may have gone to waste – health news


According to the report of The New York Times, it was stated that 62 million more doses of vaccine could be contaminated at the factory where components for corona virus vaccines were produced by Emergent BioSolutions in Baltimore.

Workers at the factory inadvertently cross-contaminated nearly 15 million doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccine with AstraZeneca in February, permanently ruining it.

However, it was stated in the news that the doses that went to the garbage were not limited and that 62 million doses of vaccine produced in the same period should also pass the quality control test.

FACTORY MANUFACTURED AT LEAST 150 MILLION DOSE VACCINES

However, the factory that produced the vaccine, but not bottled, has produced at least 150 million doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccine in total. However, the New York Times reported that none of these doses were used because the factory was not approved by regulators to distribute the doses to the public.

YEAR-END TARGET 1 BILLION DOSE

On the other hand, in the statement made the week before Johnson & Johnson, it was stated that despite the difficulties, the goal of producing 100 million doses of vaccine by the end of May will be achieved. The dose the company planned to produce by the end of 2021 was announced as 1 billion doses.
