At the large-scale inoculation center for the new coronavirus vaccine set up by Okinawa Prefecture, a foreign substance was found in the modelna vaccine with a number different from the lot number that the government has suspended.

Okinawa Prefecture reported to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare and decided not to inoculate at this venue.

According to Okinawa Prefecture, at a large-scale inoculation center in Naha City, a pharmacist found a black foreign substance in a syringe containing Moderna's new coronavirus vaccine around 3:00 pm on the 28th. I found.



After that, a black foreign body was found in one bottle of vaccine and one syringe, and a translucent pink foreign body was found in another syringe.



All vaccines have the same lot number, but they are different from the three lot numbers that the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has suspended for use due to foreign matter contamination.



Okinawa Prefecture found foreign substances in the vaccine one after another, so the vaccination was stopped halfway and reported to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare and Takeda Pharmaceutical Company, which is responsible for supplying the modelna vaccine in Japan, and the vaccination at this venue on the 29th will be postponed. I am doing it.
