Employee Arrested for Intentionally Destroying Coronavirus Vaccine Batch in Wisconsin

A now former employee of Milwaukee’s Advocate Aurora Health has been arrested for purposefully destroying a batch of the coronavirus vaccines on the day before Christmas.

The employee reportedly removed 57 vials of the Moderna coronavirus vaccine from a refrigeration unit on Dec. 24 and then left it out. This serum must remain refrigerated or it goes bad.

Each vial contained ten vaccinations.

The employee reportedly told the company that the vaccine was left out by accident.

“Grafton Police Department said in a statement late Wednesday that it was notified by Aurora shortly after 6 p.m. “regarding an employee tampering with vials of the COVID-19 vaccine” at its hospital,” Yahoo News reported.

The FBI was immediately called in and an investigation launched. And the employee was fired.

Now it has been reported that the employee has admitted to leaving the vaccine out on purpose and the employee has been fired.

The facility noted that the employee couldn’t have tampered with any other supplies of the vaccine.

“We continue to believe that vaccination is our way out of the pandemic. We are more than disappointed that this individual’s actions will result in a delay of more than 500 people receiving their vaccine,” the health care system said in a statement, according to NBC 5.

Charges are pending on the fired employee.
