Hello,

I am looking for clarification regarding your request. You asked for "any and all data related to the number" - do you just want the total number of doses wasted, and total number of doses administered? If you are looking for more than that, can you be more specific about what related data you seek?

Thank you,

Jeanette Lytle
Attorney Supervisor

Hi Jeanette,

Yes, the total number of wasted, expired and/or spoiled doses of vaccine in the referenced time frame, as well as total number of doses administered in that window. Let me know if you need anything else.
