In a memo shared by the Anaham Sage Health Clinic Facebook page on Wednesday (Jan. 20), the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) said it had come to their attention there was a break in the “cold chain” for the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, which was being held in the community’s vaccine fridge.

... Although the proper temperature was returned as soon as possible, the manufacturer determined it not to be usable.

... It is unknown how many vaccines were spoiled and if the Anaham Sage Health Clinic has back-up generators.
