14 children were given the wrong amount of the Covid vaccine

Clearly, this shouldn't happen.

But when a Northern California health clinic was busy administering COVID-19 vaccines to young children last week, 14 of the youngsters were given an incorrect for their age and/or size.

According to angry parents who contacted KGO-TV News, at least two of the children were given double the recommended dose in their vaccines.

Denise Iserloth had brought along her two children, aged eight and 11, for their vaccines, and was outraged to find the clinic had given them the wrong dose.

"I'm here tonight to report my story because it's unacceptable, you expect your medical professionals to give you correct doses!" Iserloth stated.

"They absolutely failed my children and the other 12 children involved."

Speaking of the failure when administering the pediatric vaccines, Sutter Health said in a statement that 14 of the vaccinations given at its pediatric clinic in Antioch, Northern California, had “an incorrect amount” of diluent in them. The diluent is used to dilute the concentrated form of the vaccine.

"As soon as we learned this we contacted parents,” Dr Jimmy Chu, the chair of Sutter Health’s COVID-19 task force, said in the statement.

“And we immediately reviewed our processes to help make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

Iserloth confined she had been contacted by the clinic, but this happened a whopping 10 hours after her children were given 20 micrograms of the vaccine instead of the recommended 10.

Following their shots, both children stayed home sick the following day with bad stomach aches, she explained – and added that one of her sons had collapsed twice too.

Experts say patients who receive a vaccine with an incorrect dose may experience more arm soreness, fatigue, headache, or a fever.

“We would have assumed that there was more in place to prevent this from happening, but obviously at this place there wasn’t,” Iserlots's husband, Shawn, stated.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, patients who receive a vaccine with an incorrect dose may experience more arm soreness, fatigue, headache, or a fever.
