A nurse staffing COVID-19 vaccinations at a downtown Detroit convention center has been detained by police for suspicion of stealing two doses of the Moderna vaccine. Detroit Chief Operating Officer Hakim Berry says the woman was stopped Monday after another staff member at the TCF Center saw her take two syringes. The nurse is employed by a firm that contracts with the city. Berry says no one missed getting vaccinated. Detroit police officers are among about 200 people staffing vaccinations at the center.
