Vaccine production under attack

A Welsh plant producing the vaccine was subject to a suspected IED attack.

Wockhardt UK said: "We can confirm that the investigation on the suspicious package received today has been concluded.

"Given that staff safety is our main priority, manufacturing was temporarily paused whilst this took place safely.

"We can now confirm that the package was made safe and staff are now being allowed back into the facility.

"This temporary suspension of manufacturing has in no way affected our production schedule and we are grateful to the authorities and experts for their swift response and resolution of the incident."


Why would anyone do this, unless they wanted to disrupt vaccination?

Some people are pricks; some are mentally ill.

However, they probably wanted to disrupt the vaccination programme.

I can think of a number of groups who might want to disrupt vaccine production in the UK.

Id have thought that in the middle of a pandemic a vaccine production faculty would be afford tighter than normal security.

Maybe I am being paranoid, but as the Director General of MI5 has pointed out, the UK and the West in general is facing a nasty mix of threats. NATO Arctic exercises in Norway have been cancelled due to COVID-19 - other exercises and activities are a risk of disruption, the economy is suffering, education has taken a hit, social bonds are being weakened.....

I remember that from MI5 - didn't he get a slap for including Extinction Rebellion in his list? If it was a different crowd of loonies my apologies to XR.

There are some people who should be volunteered for the first trip to Mars without oxygen.

By stopping production or harming the vaccine making it inactive and useless affects the public. The Public was the target, not the company, This was nothing more than an act of Terrorism.

Absolutely, but I wouldn’t put it past someone to try and disrupt production just to damage confidence in the supply chain, rather than to stop production all together.

BBC: Arrest over suspicious package at vaccine plant

Kent Police said a 53-year-old man from Chatham had been arrested on suspicion of sending the package and remains in custody as inquiries continue.

It said warrants had taken place on Luton Road and Chatham Hill, Chatham, on Thursday morning.

There is no evidence to suggest there is an ongoing threat, it added.

On Wednesday police said the package had been made safe and its contents would be "taken away for analysis".
