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.

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.

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..........
see? if they’d had their flu shot they wouldn’t be in the hospital! /s

Who were the Medical Assistants? They often help set things up for the Doctor or the Nurse Practitioner.
Heads should be rolling, but they probably won’t.
Something similar just happened a few weeks ago at a local school in Indianapolis where kids were supposed to be getting tuberculosis tests but instead got injected with insulin and the school nurse tried to cover it up.
Seems like an odd coincidence.

Unfortunately, this is not an uncommon mistake. There are a lot of careless people out there. Link

One more reason to NEVER get a flu shot!
Also known as a vaccine. No thank you.
