Covid-19 Vaccine Doses, Once in High Demand, Now Thrown Away

Governments, drugmakers and vaccination websites are discarding tens of hundreds of thousands of unused Covid-19 vaccine doses amid sagging demand, a pointy reversal from the early days of the mass-vaccination marketing campaign, when doses were scarce.

Vaccine producer Moderna Inc. not too long ago discarded about 30 million doses of its Covid-19 shot after failing to search out takers, whereas pharmacies and clinics have needed to throw out unused doses from multi-dose vials from Moderna and Pfizer Inc. and its companion BioNTech SE which have a brief shelf life as soon as they’re opened.
