The Netherlands faces a dilemma as it grapples with a surplus of COVID vaccines that are set to expire. Approximately 3.5 million doses, out of the 11 million unused vaccines, will go to waste. Western nations are struggling to find countries in need of the excess doses, as most already have their own supplies. Efforts to donate the vaccines to Nicaragua and Vietnam are in progress, but the remaining doses will likely be destroyed. This situation raises concerns about the wasted taxpayers' money spent on these now useless vaccines.
