Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Troubles

Adrian Sowers, Writer

This past week the Johnson & Johnson Covid vaccine has been under fire. Reports have came through that the Vaccines have been contaminated at the facilities were the vaccines are made. The Company that actually combines ingredients for the vaccine is called Emergent. FDA regulators, after touring the facilities, have found major concerns to the way that the vaccines have been prepared. They found over fifteen million vaccines that were possibly contaminated. Regulators have ruled those vaccines as being unusable. They found faults in the plants disinfectant practices. They also found flaws in the way employees were being trained in handling raw materials. The FDA also said that there is no way of knowing if other vaccines were cross-contaminated the same way that this batch was. According to The New York Times Johnson &Johnson has quarantined all of their vaccines and pulled their vaccines from being used.  Johnson & Johnson said that they will not release any more vaccines until expectations of quality have been met.
