Moderna vials found contaminated in Japan, vaccination stopped
Covid vaccination was suspended in Japan on Thursday when some vials were found contaminated with foreign substances. The supplies had come from distributor Takeda Pharmaceutical and the vaccine was produced in Spain. The contaminants were seen in 39 unopened vials at eight vaccination locations in central Japan.

TOKYO, Aug 27: Japan suspended vaccination of 1.63 million doses of Moderna after some vials were found contaminated, the Health Ministry said. The distributor of Moderna covid vaccine in Japan, Takeda Pharmaceutical, said it had “received reports from several vaccination centres that foreign substances have been found inside unopened vials”.

The company suspended the use of the vaccine from three whole batches and informed Moderna. Contaminants were seen in 39 unopened vials at eight vaccination locations in central Japan, including Tokyo, NHK said. The vaccine vials were produced in Spain by Rovi.

The Defence Ministry said some contaminated doses were administered between August 6 and 20 at its mass vaccination centre in the western city of Osaka. The vaccination centre in Tokyo was not affected. No adverse health effects have been reported so far, officials said.

A shortage of vaccine supply is causing concern in Japan although 43% of the population has been fully vaccinated even as there is a surge in Delta cases. Japan has been procuring Moderna, Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines.
