Japan: Moderna Vaccinations Halted In Okinawa After More Contaminants Found

Moderna Japan

Moderna vaccinations have been halted in the Okinawa prefecture after unknown materials were discovered.

Japan’s public broadcaster, NHK said that black substances were discovered in syringes and a vial, while unidentified pink substances were spotted in a different syringe with a Moderna vaccine dose

The latest move comes after Japan pulled 1.6 million Moderna doses from a different batch believed to be conatminated with metallic particles. Two people are known to have died after receiving vaccines from that batch.

RT reports: Okinawa’s government said in a statement on Sunday that it was suspending the use of Moderna vaccines after “foreign substances were spotted in some of them.”

Takeda Pharmaceutical, Japan’s domestic distributor of the Moderna shot, is expected to probe whether the suspected contamination occurred during production and will consult with the health ministry on the matter, NHK reported. 

The discovery comes just three days after Japan suspended the use of more than 1.6 million Moderna doses that had been distributed to 863 vaccination centers around the country. The doses were temporarily pulled from circulation as a precautionary measure after foreign material was discovered in some vials. Some of the doses were reportedly contaminated with metal particles. The newly discovered contaminated doses in Okinawa are from different vaccine lots. 

While the issue is still being investigated, Japan’s Health Ministry revealed on Saturday that two people who had received their second Moderna doses from the vaccine lots withdrawn earlier this week had died. The ministry said it was investigating what killed the two victims, both men in their 30s, and that it was currently unknown if the vaccine played a role. 

The vials from the pulled batches, which were manufactured by a Moderna contractor in Europe, are currently undergoing laboratory analysis. The results will be available early next week, Moderna and Takeda said in a joint statement released on Saturday. 

On Friday, Taro Kono, the minister in charge of Japan’s immunization campaign, disclosed that more than 500,000 vaccinations had already been carried out using the doses from the vaccine lots in question. So far, there doesn’t appear to be any “serious safety issues” identified, Kono said. 

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has launched its own probe to determine if the EU’s Moderna supply suffers from similar contamination problems. 


  1. Yes and being Asian they need to check each batch and trace it back to who made it too. As should every country be very careful and inspect every single shot before administering it.Unless they’re dispensed without the recipient needing to be identified in advance.

  2. It is a trick they use, the satanic medical/Pharmaceutical destroyers of health (to keep the money flowing in). People assume all vaccines are identical, then when they make some more deadly and some children become autistic but others do not, they can use that to avoid the consequences of their dark and sinister plans. Some people will die, others more slowly and some not at all, so they can’t blame the vaccine. Now we know, not every dose is the same. The question is why are the manufactures not made accountable for all these injuries. They can’t hide behind the assumption that all their doses are exactly the same anymore. But don’t they run the government, is not the Government of America just a subsidiary of the satanic medical industry, and every other satanic organization under the total control of the Luciferian Bankers??? If that were not true, this world would be a nice place and not a filthy, cesspit of every sin and vice devolving into extinction for all life on earth and the planet itself. The fall of america is coming and the medical industry will be the bullet that kills it. Lucifer and his henchmen are laughing his @$$ off at all of you, who are so trusting=all the way to Lucifer’s Bank$. He owns you and you are his miserable slaves.

  3. And than they had to put down the rabid coivid dog before it killed everyone old yellow was right in the first place
