According to reports, around 200 vials of Astrazeneca Covishield vaccines had been found in this manner.
However, a hospital spokesman said that these were the doses remaining in the vials after 10 doses were administered during the first round of inoculation in March.
Two full vials had been discarded after not meeting the technical specifics required, while being transported, he had noted.
The spokesman had further added that the vials were stored to be disposed of and they had already formally informed the Ministry of Health.
