Gunma Prefecture revealed on the 29th that a foreign substance was found in the Moderna vaccine at a large-scale inoculation center in the prefecture.


It is a lot number that is different from the one that the country has announced the suspension of use and the one that foreign matter was found in Okinawa.

According to Gunma Prefecture, at around 10:30 am on the 29th, a blackish color less than 0.5 mm in size was put in the bottle of Moderna's vaccine that was planned to be used at the Toumou Vaccination Center set up in Ota City by the prefecture. It was found that one foreign substance was mixed in.



The lot number of this vaccine is different from the one that the country has announced the suspension of use and the one in which a foreign substance was found in Okinawa, but the prefecture is coordinating the announcement of the lot number with the country. It is said that.



From the 27th to the 29th, it was confirmed that a total of 4575 people were vaccinated with the same lot number at the Toumou Vaccination Center.



Gunma Prefecture visually checks for foreign substances when transferring or inoculating the vaccine from the bottle, and it is said that no illness has been confirmed by follow-up after inoculation, but there are abnormalities. If there is, I would like you to consult a doctor and contact the prefecture.



In addition, the Toumou Vaccination Center used another lot of vaccine and resumed vaccination after noon on the 29th, so it does not affect the future vaccination schedule.
