BOSTON — The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department says that 10 vials of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine were spoiled in a case of human error over the weekend.
The ten vials, each containing ten doses of the vaccine, were inadvertently refrozen by a contractor employed by the department’s medical provider, Naphcare, the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.
“The spoiled vials were not administered to anyone, posing no threat to human life or health,” the statement said.
The Sheriff’s Department referred any further questions to Naphcare.
