Vaccines Going to Waste

(Indianapolis, IN) - Unused COVID vaccine doses are piling up across the state.


Early in the rollout of vaccines, state health officials reported only 172 out of over 1.3 million doses had gone to waste.


But the number of wasted doses has ballooned to nearly 62,000 since January. That’s according to the Evansville Courier & Press.


Even though health workers try to use up expiring vaccines, unused doses have been piling up. They say the doses go to waste for various reasons ranging from expiration to being prepared for patients who do not attend appointments.
