In Belgium, about eight million doses of COVID-19 vaccine, produced by Modernna and Pfizer, will be destroyed, local media reported, citing a statement by Health Minister Frank Vandenbroek.
Everything on the topic:
The coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic 32669
It is noted that the country has 15.3 million doses, but for some of them the shelf life is expiring, and others no longer counteract the new varieties of the disease virus. It is added that in order to receive new doses, the country must free up space in cold stores.
Destruction is due as soon as possible, the minister explained. In his words, this is mainly due to the development of a better vaccine, BTA reported.
