We all know the vaccines are in high demand and seem to be in short supply so when the news broke about 1,000 doses being damaged it’s making national headlines. The Florida Department of Health announced it has called for an audit into the Palm Beach County Health Care District after it reported damage to more than 1,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine last week. Officials are asking that the audit be completed by Friday, Feb. 12.

"It is a tragedy that even one dose of this critical resource would go to waste and not be used to save a life from COVID-19," Florida Surgeon General Dr. Scott Rivkees said in a statement. "While we must rely on partners to distribute this critical resource, we expect that every provider treat the vaccine as the precious commodity that it is.
