Thank you so much! Can you provide me with actual copies of those waste reports, or with a copy of the database that contains them (for example, in CSV or XLSX format)? If not, can you provide more details on the wasted doses — date, location, vaccine manufacturer, reason for waste, etc.?

Thank you for your time and help!

Best,
Joshua
