We have terrible news at the beginning of the day. It is indeed something that should not have happened but did because of the negligence on the part of the people, and this might have some bad consequences not only for the pharmacy but to the people who were given the wrong dose of the Covid 19 vaccine.
Virginia Pharmacy Gave Incorrect COVID-19 Vaccine Dose To Younger Kids
We all know that the vaccine for kids between the age group of 5 and 11 had been approved by the FDA and the CDC quite recently. As a result of this, kids all over the country are taken by their parents to get the Covid 19 vaccine.
However, by the sake of hell, around 100 kids or so were given the wrong dose of the Covid 19 vaccine at a Virginia pharmacy. This is indeed some very bad news, and it really is something that is punishable. The kids were given the doses meant for the more older kids with the age group above 12 years old.
Now it is indeed an issue that can not be fixed because the vaccine had already been administered to the kids. It goes without saying that the kid’s parents are all really angry about this turn of events, and rightfully so we must say.
“On Nov. 5, state and federal authorities ordered the pharmacy to discontinue administering the vaccine, and VDH subsequently collected all COVID-19 vaccines at the pharmacy,” the agency had told the news in a statement.
“Officials instructed the pharmacy to notify parents about next steps, including the recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding whether patients should restart the vaccine series or receive a correct second dose.
VDH is also working to contact parents and ensure they understand the guidance on next steps.”
That is all that we have for now. Take care.
