Vaccines of Pfizer wasted at a storage facility?
Some Pfizer vaccines were wasted at a storage facility in Alabang, Muntinlupa after the facility had some problems.
This was according to the local government announcement on Thursday, July 15.
“Ayon sa inisyal na pagsusuri, nagkaroon ng pagbabago sa temperature na maaaring makaapekto sa kalidad ng bakuna,” the statement said.
“Prayoridad natin ang kapakanan ng bawat isa kaya’t nagdesisyon pong huwag nang gamitin ang mga bakunang ito. Mas mabuti na pong sigurado tayo dahil kaligtasan ng mga babakunahan ang nakasalalay dito,” it added.
Due to this, the vaccination in Festival Mall was temporarily stopped.
According to TNT Abante, vaccines are sensitive to temperature and must follow the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure safety.
Meanwhile, the COVID-19 vaccination has been rolled out across the country to combat the rapid increase of COVID-19.
Among those who were on the priority list of the COVID-19 vaccination program are medical frontliners, persons with comorbidities, and senior citizens.
Celebrities as well as delivery service riders, self-employed, and other laborers who have to go out for work are part of the A4 category.
