The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered Johnson & Johnson to destroy 60 million doses of tainted mRNA vaccine made at a Baltimore plant.
The Baltimore plant, run by Emergent BioSolutions, was shut down two months ago after a mixup ruined millions of doses. The vaccine doses were ordered destroyed on Friday.
Emergent BioSolutions was cited for multiple heath code violations. The FDA has ordered Johnson & Johnson to discard 60 million doses made at the plant.
The health code violations include workers failing to shower or change clothes, mold in the equipment and poor disinfection of equipment.

As a result of the 60 million discarded vaccine doses, the United States will not meet the White House's goal for 70% of Americans partially vaccinated by July 4.
This is the second time Johnson & Johnson has been targeted by the FDA.
In April, the FDA halted the production of Johnson & Johnson vaccines after reports of deadly blood clots.
Six women were diagnosed with blood clots after taking the J&J vaccine. One woman died.
It is unclear how many Americans received doses of the J&J vaccine after the ingredient mix-up.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a draft of possible side effects from the still experimental Covid-19 messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine (link opens PDF).
The terrifying list looks like something out of a horror movie script. The scariest side effect (other than death) is disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).
In my 30+ years as a registered nurse I've only witnessed two patients suffering from DIC. Both patients died within hours.
DIC is the singular most horrific medical condition I've ever witnessed. Basically, DIC interrupts the body's normal clotting function and the patient bleeds from every orifice, including the eyes, nose and mouth.
Blood transfusions are pointless because of the lack of clotting factors. So the blood transfusions go into the veins and pour out through the nose, ears, eyes, vagina, anus -- even the pores in the skin ooze blood.
The following is a draft of possible adverse reactions to the mRNA vaccine.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) relaxed regulations for blood donations by men who have sex with men (MSM) amid a nationwide blood shortage caused by Covid-19.
Homosexual men and other MSM remain the #1 transmitters and carriers of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
But the FDA eased restrictions on homosexual men donating blood because Covid-19 has caused a shortage in blood transfusions due to stay-at-home orders in various states.
The FDA lifted the total ban on homosexual men giving blood in 2015 amid pressure from homosexual activists and lawmakers who insisted blood donations by homosexual men were safe.
The FDA announced last week that it was reducing the amount of time MSM were required to wait before donating blood or blood plasma.
Under previous guidelines, set in 2015, the FDA recommended that sexually active MSM wait for 12 months after their last sexual contact before donating blood.
The new regulations allows MSM to donate blood after not being sexually active for only three months. The regulation relies on honesty and moral integrity.
Sexually active lesbians and heterosexual men and women have no restrictions on donating blood.
