Did they not look at the vial?
Was the vial mislabeled?
Did someone tamper with the vials?

I hate when that happens.

Thank goodness there were some “Heath Professionals” there to take care of the afflicted.

Oh wait...

They only realized it when they were charged $800 instead of $4

This doesnt make sense.

It does when we realize that the people doing the injecting are med techs often from foreign countries who cannot speak english.

That is who is caring for our disabled and mentally ill.

Could the nursing assistant who was likely giving the injections read English?

My ONLY flu shot was in 1972 while in the USAF.

I wonder if a Registered Nurse was involved or a cheaper much less trained “Health Aid” of some kind..........

Good chance it will end up being a very expensive waste of insulin. Probably got the shots for free or a small fee. Plus, there will be legal action.

...probably not but we’ll never know. Asking such a question can be any a number of “phobes” or “ists”.

Someone carelessly placed an Insulin vial in the wrong area.

Someone carelessly picked up a vial and injected people without verifying the substance in that vial.

The last person to touch it, use it, pulled a major screw-up.

Probably a graduate of a Math & Science academy. We have one of those here. It’s housed in a defunct sporting goods store.

Yeah, is this going to count as a flu hospitalization?
