Pfizer says substances found in COVID-19 vaccine vials in Japan harmless - Reports

Tokyo, Sep 15 (UNI/Sputnik) US pharmaceutical company Pfizer has announced that 95 vials of its coronavirus vaccine had floating substances, which are undissolved residue and are thus harmless, the Japanese Kyodo news agency reported on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, it was reported that white floating matter was found in five unused Pfizer vials in vaccination centers in the cities of Sagamihara and Kamakura in Japan's Kanagawa prefecture, and Sakai in Osaka prefecture. The vials reportedly belonged to the same lot, FF5357.
Speaking at a press conference in Tokyo, Pfizer's Japanese branch said that vials can contain a white undissolved residue that does not pose a health issue even if it does not get dissolved when the vial is turned over. At the same time, the company promised to look into the matter and report its findings.
