Germany Demands Johnson & Johnson to Replace Spoiled Covid-19 Vaccine Doses

On Sunday, 13th June 2021, The Health Ministry of Germany have told the pharmaceutical giant of United States ‘Johnson & Johnson’ that, it has expected the delivery of 6.5 million corona virus vaccine doses in July 2021 for offsetting a shortfall of the vaccines.

On Friday, 11th June 2021, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) of United States has announced that, it had identified the potentially contaminated or spoiled corona virus vaccines during an inspection at a plant of Johnson & Johnson in Baltimore, and this issue had also been flagged by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

The media of United States have also noted that, 10 million corona virus vaccines doses developed by Johnson & Johnson had been cleared for use, but 60 million vaccine doses have been disposed.

On Sunday, 13th June 2021, a spokesperson of Health Ministry of Germany said, this has been regrettable, because every dose of the corona virus vaccine counts, and hence they are expecting that, Johnson and Johnson will deliver the quantity as soon as possible in the month of July 2021 for offsetting the 6.5 million covid-19 vaccine doses by end of June 2021.

The Health Ministry of Germany has listed the deliveries of three other corona virus vaccines licensed by the European Union (EU), that are due by the end of April to July 2021 quarter, and the Health Ministry of Germany also said that, as of today, they are expecting that, Pfizer and BioNTech will be delivering 50.3 million corona virus vaccine doses, along with 6.4 million Moderna doses and 12.4 million vaccine doses by AstraZeneca for meeting their supply commitments for the second quarter of 2021.
