Health authorities in Colombian capital Bogota said a truck transporting Covid-19 vaccines was hijacked on Tuesday, soon after leaving a distribution center.  

The vehicle had just dropped off a delivery of vaccines, so no immunizers were stolen.

And Bogota authorities have another problem on their plate: there are currently 372 doses of Pfizer vaccine that have been recalled due to a lack of labeling, and another 18 are being analyzed due to a suspected microparticle interference during transit.
