On April 14, local time, Greek police arrested a man suspected of coming from Aguia, a northern suburb of Athens. A courier who stole a bottle of Pfizer vaccine from the Agia Paraskevi vaccination center.
It is reported that the courier works in a coffee shop near the vaccination center. When he went to the vaccination center to deliver coffee takeaways, he kept asking health care providers questions about the use of the Pfizer vaccine. After he left, staff found a missing bottle of Pfizer vaccine that had used one to two doses and immediately called the police.
The police quickly arrested the courier. But the suspect denies the charges. He has now been released and is awaiting court appearance.
A bottle of Pfizer vaccine can be given up to six doses, according to the data. But because the Coronavirus vaccine needs to be stored at very low temperatures or the vaccine needs to be destroyed, it is difficult to use it outside hospitals or vaccination centers, and stealing it is not profitable.
