Thirteen police reports have been lodged so far on the matter, with most of them found to be false or inconclusive, said Mr Khairy.

Some of them were lodged by recipients who did not experience any side effects after getting their jabs, he was quoted by the Malay Mail news portal as saying.

Is the word “lodged” in both paragraphs used correctly?

Thanks!

@tanguatlay,
lodge: transitive verb: to lay (something, such as a complaint) before a proper authority : "the defendant then lodged an appeal"

"Lodge" is used correctly in the examples you have posted.
