 Wisconsin drug specialist who attempted to ruin 500 COVID-19 antibody portions confesses to government altering charges 

The Wisconsin drug specialist accused of attempting to pulverize COVID-19 immunizations confessed on Tuesday to government altering charges. 

Every one of the government charges conveys a potential most extreme sentence of 10 years, or 20 years for the two tallies, one for each time specialists say Steven Brandenburg purposefully avoided in excess of 500 portions with regard to the fridge where they were put away at Aurora Medical Center in Grafton. 

Government specialists charged Brandenburg, 46, on Tuesday and documented his request arrangement simultaneously. 

‘A conceded connivance scholar’: Pharmacist who attempted to ruin 500 antibody portions made ‘full admission,’ police say 

On Dec. 24 and Dec. 25, he avoided vials of the Moderna COVID-19 antibody with regard to the fridge. 

Brandenburg later told examiners he accepted the antibody was risky. 

“On the morning of December 26, 2020, 57 people at the Grafton Facility got dosages of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine that Brandenburg had recently eliminated from refrigeration. 

The dosages Brandenburg left out were outside refrigeration for three hours on one evening and nine on another.
