Vaccine manufacturer Johnson & Johnson halted all future shipments of their Vaccine doses after around 15 million shots were ruined because of a mistake by workers at their Emergent BioSolutions’ Baltimore plant.
Emergent BioSolutions' is also a partner with AstraZeneca, who also makes Vaccines.
Regulators were forced to delay authorization of the production lines at the plant.
The workers mixed up ingredients for their single-dose Vaccine and a second COVID-19 immunisation which was produced several weeks ago.
Doses that were currently being delivered worldwide were not reportedly affected because they come from another factory in the Netherlands.
The Food and Drug Administration launched an investigation.
Human error was the reason for the delay according to Federal officials.
American President, Joe Biden, set a goal to meet ends by providing enough doses for every adult in the United States by the end of May.
The goal is still expected to succeed with great success to vaccinate everyone to fight against the COVID-19 virus.
