Vaccine Error — And Possible Tragedy

Not one error, but four errors. FOUR! 

Dateline: Evansville, Indiana.  All four members of the Price family pictured below were given adult-strength COVID vaccines instead of the flu vaccine:

The Prices say their children [four-year-old Lucas and five-year-old Sophia] have been exhibiting side effects since getting the adult doses, including fever, coughs, hypertension and heart issues.
Read the rest HERE.

How in the world does such an error happen in the first place?

I tell you this....When I go to get my annual flu shot  should my primary care doctor recommend that I do so  I will demand to see the vial or other package to make sure that there is no "mix up"!  I cannot afford to have another reaction to another COVID vaccine!

Addendum, dated October 15, 2021: 16 more coronavirus/flu shot mixups reported.

  1. The shot had enough ability to do damage that I am surprised that the parents were unaffected. I am curious as to whether they had previously been shot.
    My friend and neighbor just got his flu shot and was sick for days. What is the point?

    1. Ed,
      The Prices (adults) both had COVID vaccines -- in April, I believe. The husband has been having some reactions, but so far as reported by the news, not critical reactions. The wife didn't want him to talk about his reactions on camera because she felt that they should be emphasizing the problems that both the children were having.

      I've gotten a flu shot every year since 1962 (my mother was at severe risk from the flu because of a cardiac condition) -- except for in 1972, when I had rounds of strep throat preventing my getting the flu shot.

      I never reacted much from a flu shot. The one year I skipped the flu shot, I caught a rip-roaring case of influenza, to the point that I was confined to bed rest for a full month.

      I've been planning to get a flu shot this year, but these "mix ups," both at Walgreens and CVS here where I'm living in Indiana, have made me reticent to get a flu shot. I'll take up the matter with my primary care doc today.

    2. When I was in the military, flu shots were mandatory, so I got one every year. I have not gotten one since I became a civilian. I don't have anything against them, it's just the less things I put into my body, the better.

    3. SF,
      I understand.

      When I was a classroom teacher, I had significant exposure to viruses of all kinds. Now? All my teaching is on Zoom. And I tend to stay away from crowds -- even more now that COVID is roaming now, but I've always disliked being in big crowds.

    4. I managed to get out before mandatory flu vax in UASF.
      I've heard nightmare stories of some who have.
      YMMV. That's the point.
      Some people appear unaffected. That's no excuse to foist it on others who are reticent to roll the dice, particularly for something that they don't feel threatened by.

    5. Ed,
      No employer mandated a flu vaccine for me.

      I must say, though, that every time Mr. AOW was admitted to a hospital, he was vaccinated. was there any other choice? If don't recall that we were presented with a choice. Flu shot and pneumonia shot -- mandatory, especially for admission to a nursing home.

    6. The memory just popped into my head this minute, reading these comments, that I actually had a notation on my Navy shot card not to administer the annual flu shot. I got it one year and developed a 104 degree fever. Navy docs said it was a fluke and gave me the shot the next year. Same thing happened and they put the note on my shot card.

  2. “However, in general, such instances are rare and Walgreens takes these matters very seriously. In the event of any error, our first concern is always our patients' well-being.” --Walgreens statement

    Well, maybe. If their first concern is always their patients’ well-being, then the error wouldn’t have happened in the first place. You can’t “un-Vax” a child. And, if Walgreens takes these matters seriously, then why does this company hire morons to work as pharm-techs ... and why aren’t they doing a better job screening applicants for positions as pharmacists? Look, I’m sure affirmative action has nothing to do with the fact most assembly line pharmacy operations seem to resemble a Chinese fire drill. I’m actually amazed there aren’t twenty times the number of mistakes. Is either Walgreens or CVS addressing this back-counter chaos? I’ve never seen any evidence of it and IMO, that’s where the problem lies.

  3. As a "person at risk," age 78 with seriously compromised lungs, I have gotten a flu shot every year for quite a long time. Not this year. I am staying as far removed from the corrupted health care system as I can. If doing so kills me, so be it. At least it will be a natural death.

    1. Jayhawk,
      I think I might get a flu shot at my primary care doctor's office -- if his office is giving flu shots, that is. It seems more and more doctors are shipping us over to Walgreens or CVS. What's up with that?

  4. Doctator Fauci has announced to reporters that he may just allow us to have Christmas this year, if we all behaving get our shots.

  5. Is this blog open to the Public or not?
    If it is then why are my comments always being deleted?

    1. On-topic comments do not get deleted.

    2. It's interesting to see one of these spam commenters actually reply as if they were a human and not a bot. Is the software evolving that significantly?

    3. I really don't understand it. This one even has a potemkin blog, with recent posts (but no comments). This is the fourth or fifth time he's asked why I keep deleting his comments.

      There are three or four others who post off-topic canned statements.

  6. This may actually be one of the conditions on which they can get monetary damages.

    Another regular "error" with the vax is they are supposed to inject a bit then retract the plunger to make sure NO blood is drawn - nicked a vein. Their package insert states if the vaccine gets into a vein/artery you can cause myocarditis. I would love to know how many are doing that.

      So would I!

      Does that method matter with all vaccines?

    2. Not sure. But IM is supposed to be IM, not IV. This is apparently on the package insert for the C-vax.

  7. That would be "myopericarditis." Intravenous injection also caused calcium deposits on the inner layer of the pericardium, a condition that can lead to restrictive pericarditis and diastolic heart failure, and liver damage.
