Vaccine mix-ups are rare and there are systems in place to keep it that way

An Indiana couple says they took their family to get their annual flu shot at the local Walgreens last month, but all of them, including their 4- and 5-year-old, were given a Covid-19 vaccine by mistake. Mistakes like this can happen, but they’re incredibly rare, public health experts say. Pharmacists and other specialists who give the shots say there are dozens of safeguards built into the system to limit the possibility of human error. And, in the case of Covid-19 vaccines, if someone is getting a second dose, for example, and accidentally gets a Moderna vaccine, when they had Pfizer’s first, that likely won’t cause side effects or other health problems, according to findings from an ongoing National Institutes of Health study. FDA vaccine advisers recommend emergency use authorization for booster dose of Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine FDA vaccine advisers recommend emergency use authorization for booster dose of Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine “A single bad situation like that gets a lot of coverage, but hundreds of millions of doses and second doses have been administered in a very effective, accurate and careful way,” said Jennifer Kertanis, the director of health for the Farmington Valley Health District in Connecticut who has overseen many public vaccination efforts. “While these types of mistakes are really unfortunate, they don’t happen very often and people administering these vaccines are doing everything they can to put steps in place to reduce that potential for human error.” The CEO of the National Association of County and City Health Officials, Lori Freeman, said vaccine mistakes like this are as “rare as a plane crash, thankfully.” ‘Checking, double-checking and even triple-checking’ It’s unclear what went wrong in the case of the Indiana family. Joshua and Alexandra Price said they learned about the mistake from the pharmacist who called them about 90 minutes after they received the shots. The couple had already been vaccinated against Covid-19 earlier in the year, and their children weren’t old enough to get a Covid-19 vaccine yet, as they were only authorized for children 12 and older. The vaccine they received was three times the dose being considered for children’s vaccines. The kids experienced side effects from the shots, the family said, and were being treated by a cardiologist. A Walgreens spokesperson said the company could not comment on a particular case due to privacy concerns, but released a statement that emphasized safety was a “top priority.” Parents say Walgreens mistakenly injected them and their two kids with the Covid-19 vaccine instead of flu shot Parents say Walgreens mistakenly injected them and their two kids with the Covid-19 vaccine instead of flu shot “Our multi-step vaccination procedure includes several safety checks to minimize the chance of human error and we have reviewed this process with our pharmacy staff in order to prevent such occurrences,” a statement from the company said. It’s those safety steps that vaccine managers said are crucial to protect people who get a vaccine, particularly when more kinds of vaccines are being added to the mix, like Covid-19 boosters and flu shots, and possibly Covid-19 shots for kids that would require a different kind of dosage. “The system that pharmacies use is very similar to what they use in medication,” said Mitch Rothholz, the head of immunization policy at the American Pharmacists Association. “It’s checking, double-checking and even triple-checking everything.” “It also involves putting systems in place that limit human error,” Rothholz said. Avoiding vaccine mix-ups Vaccine safety starts with how the product is stored and labeled, Rothholz said. If products look similar, stores will keep the vaccines in different parts of storage.

Less than 24 hours later, she was combating misinformation at a school board meeting At mass vaccine clinics with multiple vaccines, people seeking different shots will wait in separate sections. People who need a Moderna shot, for example, will be filtered into one section of the site, another section will be for Pfizer, another for Johnson & Johnson. Each section will be clearly marked with signs. Often, Freeman said, clinics will provide just one kind of vaccine at a time to avoid any possible confusion. Freeman said there is a lot of thought and redundancy that goes into giving out a vaccine. At many clinics, people will be asked to pre-register and then when they get to the clinic, a greeter will verify the person’s information. Then there’s registration, and then another check when the person administers the shot. Some personal responsibility is also involved, the vaccine managers said. A vaccinator can steer that with a conversation as they give someone the vaccine.

Is this correct?'” Rothholz said. “If I’m giving out more than one vaccine at a time, I’ll be sure to give one in each arm and repeat what I’m doing, and say, ‘I’m giving you your Covid vaccine in your left and your flu vaccine in your right,'” Rothholz said. https://tautaruna.nra.lv/forums/tema/46599-monday-night-football-2021-live-stream-mnf-game-week-9/
