At Korea University Guro Hospital in Seoul, it was found that 140 people were vaccinated with the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) vaccine, which had passed the recommended inoculation period after thawing. Korea University Guro Hospital said, “There is no safety concern,” but “There is a concern that sufficient immunity may not be developed, so the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will decide whether to re-vaccinate.”

According to the health authorities on the 4th, the Pfizer vaccine was administered at Korea Daegu Guro Hospital on the 26th and 27th of last month, and the vaccine was administered near or exceeding the recommended period after thawing. Pfizer vaccines should be stored frozen and thawed in the refrigerator or room temperature before use. Unopened vials (bottles) should be stored at room temperature for up to 2 hours, and if the vial is opened and diluted in saline, it should be used within 6 hours. 147 people received the vaccine that had to be discarded after the storage period, and most of them were primary recipients.

It is known that Korea University Guro Hospital found out about this the day before and reported it to the Guro-gu public health center, while sending a text message to the vaccinated people. The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said, “The safety and effectiveness of a vaccine that exceeds the expiration date will be reviewed by an expert deliberation committee to decide whether to revaccinate or not.” Therefore, we will make a decision before the arrival of three weeks and guide you.”

As COVID-19 vaccine vaccination for adults aged 18 to 49 is in full swing, misinoculation accidents are occurring one after another in the medical field. On the 2nd and 3rd, respectively, in Busan (8 people) and Ulsan (90 people), when an accidental vaccination of COVID-19 that passed the expiration date occurred, the quarantine authorities urged each inoculation institution to check the expiration date and vaccinate. Kwon Geun-yong, head of the Vaccination Implementation Management Team of the Corona 19 Vaccination Response Promotion Team (promotional team) said, “The guidelines for medical institutions or inoculation institutions for the prevention of misinoculation are instructing them to check the expiration date on the vial before inoculation.”
