On the morning of Wednesday, December 30, 2020, the pill box containing the adjuvant Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was placed in the refrigerator at Augusta University in Augusta, Georgia. 

An employee of the Wisconsin health system was admitted to deliberately sabotaging 500 doses of the coronavirus vaccine, and police and federal authorities are investigating this.

Aurora Medical Center first reported that the doses had deteriorated on Saturday, stating that an employee of Aurora Medical Center in Grafton placed them overnight without refrigeration. The health system said Wednesday that the dose of the vaccine now appears to have been deliberately destroyed.

Police in Grafton, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Milwaukee, said in a statement that the department, the FBI and the Food and Drug Administration are "actively" investigating the case. The police said they were told that they were suspected of tampering Wednesday night. Police said Thursday morning that no other information will be released immediately and declined to say whether anyone has been arrested.

In a statement late Wednesday, Aurora said that the employee "admitted their intention to remove the vaccine from cold storage."

Aurora stated that he had fired the employee and referred the matter to the authorities. The statement did not state a possible motive for the action.

The statement said: "We still believe that vaccination is our way out of the pandemic. We are disappointed that this person's actions will cause more than 500 people to delay vaccination."

Aurora said it would provide more information on Thursday.
