GRAFTON, Wisconsin – Police and federal authorities are investigating a Wisconsin health system worker who admitted to deliberately wasting 500 doses of the coronavirus vaccine.
Aurora Medical Center first reported that the doses were wasted on Saturday, claiming they were accidentally left unrefrigerated overnight by an employee at Aurora Medical Center in Grafton. The health system said on Wednesday that vaccine doses now appear to have been deliberately spoiled.
Police in Grafton, about 20 miles north of Milwaukee, said in a statement that the Department, the FBI and the Food and Drug Administration were “actively” investigating the case. Police said they were made aware of the alleged tampering on Wednesday evening. Police said Thursday morning that no further information would immediately be released and declined to say whether any arrests had been made.
