A U.S. pharmacist has been sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to stealing dozens of Kovid-19 vaccines, the Department of Justice reported.
Court records show 46 – year – old Steven Brandenburg deliberately removed Modena’s immunization bottles from his Wisconsin hospital refrigerator.
The pharmacist will have to pay $ 83,800 (approximately $ 421,000) to the hospital for damages.
The vaccines were removed from the fridge during the night shift and left in the room for several hours before being refrigerated for the next day.
A total of 57 people received these doses, according to the government.
“A deliberate attempt to rob people of vaccine doses in a national health emergency is a serious offense,” said Brian Boynton, assistant attorney general for civil affairs at the Department of Justice.
Steven Brandenburg said he believes the vaccine is dangerous to humans and can modify DNA.
The modern vaccine, as developed by Pfizer-Biotech, is based on messenger RNA technology, which ‘teaches’ the immune system how to fight a virus.
More than 124 million doses of modern immunosuppressants have been applied in the United States.
