Delays Imminent After Millions of Vaccines Ruined

Delays Imminent After Millions of Vaccines Ruined

( – After more than a year of lockdowns and other harsh coronavirus-related restrictions, Americans are ready for the country to get back to normal. A lot of people are pinning their hopes on the COVID-19 vaccines and the possibility of herd immunity. However, the latest news about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine has caused serious concern. Here’s what happened.

Children’s health advocacy site The Defender has reported that a mix-up at a Baltimore pharmaceutical plant led to a production delay. The April 1 report indicated that about 15 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine failed to pass quality control standards.

Reportedly, workers at the plant accidentally combined ingredients from Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine with those intended for use in the AstraZeneca shot.

Perhaps more disturbing is the New York Times report that the plant is operated by Emergent BioSolutions, a company whose vaccine hasn’t been authorized for use in the United States.

Americans have enough on their plates without the safety standards of vaccine manufacturers coming into question.
