Huggins Hospital investigates missing dose of vaccine

In full transparency, we want to share with our community that we are investigating a report of a single missing dose of the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine that was meant to be administered to one of our employees. This single dose may have been stolen and we are investigating this situation along with other agencies. We have reported this situation to law enforcement and will follow their lead with next steps. We are also conducting an internal review of our processes to make any changes needed to prevent any similar situations from occurring in the future. Our staff did the right thing in voicing concerns regarding a missing dose and we quickly responded with this investigation. We do not anticipate any impact to our community or patients and continue to be dedicated to vaccinating everyone as quickly and safely as possible. Thank you to everyone for your support as we continue this investigation.
