Nearly 2,000 Vaccines Ruined After Freezer Accidentally Unplugged

Nearly 2,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were ruined after someone accidentally unplugged the freezer they were stored in.

 
 

Officials at Jamaica Plain VA Medical Center in Boston say the plug was accidentally removed by a contractor while cleaning, and an alarm meant to go off in such a situation failed.

 
 

Doses of Moderna vaccine must be stored at minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit and can only survive at room temperature for 12 hours.
