Japan's new crown vaccination was once again exposed to errors.
On the morning of the 13th, at a new crown vaccination site in Chiyoda District, Tokyo, four elderly people in their 70s to 80s were "incorrectly vaccinated with vaccines scheduled to be scrapped due to improper storage."
The Chiyoda district said that on the 12th, the staff found that a batch of vaccines were not up to standard due to the storage temperature, and decided to scrap them, and marked "prohibited use" on the batch of vaccines. However, on the 13th, four elderly people were still vaccinated. This batch of vaccines is scheduled to be scrapped.
It is said that so far, the four elderly people have had no adverse reactions.
Chiyoda District will test them for antibodies in two or three weeks to determine whether they need to be revaccinated.
Japan launched the new crown vaccination on February 17, the first batch of about 4.8 million medical staff, and the beginning of April 12 for people over 65 years of age.
Over the past few months, Japan’s vaccination errors have continued, and there have been: one person received three shots of the vaccine, one person received two doses of the vaccine on the same day, the interval between the two doses of vaccination was incorrect, the injection of undiluted vaccine stock solution, and the emptying Needle, mistakenly using normal saline for vaccination, injection of insufficient concentration of vaccine, etc.
