Columbus, Ohio (WJW) – Ohio Department of Health is investigating after 890 Covid-19 The vaccines are in vain.
The Department of Health said SpecialtyRX, the Columbus vaccine provider, was granted 1,500 vacancies to residents of eight long-term care facilities.
After the first doses were administered, SpecialtyRX 890 had residual doses. The Ohio Department of Health said the company was exploring transferring the doses to another provider when it was discovered that they had failed to adequately monitor temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer.
The ODH vaccination program investigated and found that 890 doses of Moderna vaccine were no longer valid because they were not properly stored, according to the Ministry of Health.
“The first doses of Moderna vaccine that were given to residents and workers in long-term care facilities were applicable. For the second dose, long-term care facilities will have to coordinate with another provider which would likely be the local health department,” ODH said Wednesday.
The state Department of Health said it has stopped allocating further vaccine to SpecialtyRX
