Japan Halts 2.6M Moderna Doses as Officials Say Two Deaths Possibly Linked to Vaccine

Over 2.6 million doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine have been suspended in Japan as of Sunday, following reports that two people died after some vials were found to be contaminated with foreign substances.

The country's health ministry said Sunday that an additional one million doses have been suspended after contaminated vaccine vials were found in both the Gunma prefecture near Tokyo, and the southern prefecture of Okinawa. The latest suspension comes after 1.63 million doses were halted last week over similar concerns.

In Gunma, a tiny black substance was found in a Moderna vaccine vial by a local official, while in Okinawa, black and pink substances were spotted in syringes and vials, Reuters reported.
