In the Primorsky Territory, more than 1,5 thousand doses of the deteriorated COVID-19 vaccine had to be destroyed. A batch of the drug fell into disrepair after a power outage at a vaccination point in Artem.

As the Interfax, the commission of the regional Ministry of Health concluded that 1 doses of the Gam-COVID-Vac vaccine are unsuitable for use in mass immunization of the population. Experts confirmed the fact that the drug was thawed and the temperature in the freezer decreased due to power outages. Secondary freezing of the vaccine is not allowed.

The vaccine "Gam-COVID-Vak" is stored as a frozen solution at temperatures below minus 18 degrees. Power outages occurred in Primorye due to a recent cyclone, which led to network failures.
