CVS gives wrong vaccine dose to some people
A CVS in Ipswich, Mass., is contacting patients who received the COVID-19 vaccine there to let them know about a dosage mistake.
you know, you just sort of our shock. Carol Kennedy Hurley is still shaking her head in disbelief just days after getting her covert vaccine at the CBS and Ipswich on Lee to be notified by the pharmacist about a dosage mistake's. You got your shot here, buddy. I said, yes, I did. Well, you know, calling you, uh, to tell you that, uh, there was Ah, miss take in the dosage. CVS says a limited number of patients who received the vaccine Monday here at the central Street location were inadvertently given a smaller dosage receiving 0.3 mL of the Madonna vaccine instead of the correct 0.5 millimeter dose. So I guess the basic word is trust. That's really what it comes down to and from the beginning, with this whole pandemic, Who do you trust? Doctors say, despite the mess up, there's no reason for patients like Carol toe get in additional dose, and she can still get the second shot next month as planned. So different things that you could dio to try to minimize or mitigate the risk of errors. But we know because we're humans that there may be errors happen, especially we're trying to vaccinate with two different vaccines. CBS released a written statement that reads in part. We have contacted all affected patients to apologize and answer any questions they might have, adding. We reported it to the appropriate regulatory agencies. But Carol says no one apologized to her. CBS said They apologized. Everybody Well, no, no, they just gave me the information and it was really gotcha lot.
