After Bihar, in another shocking incident, this time from Rajasthan, a woman in Jhunjhunu district was allegedly given two doses of COVID-19 vaccine in a gap of just 40 seconds. The incident took place on July 3 at a vaccination camp in Bakara village.
The woman accused that the health officials were busy on their phones when she was administered two doses back-to-back. Surendra Kumar said that he brought his wife Maya Devi to get inoculated during a vaccination camp in Bakara on July 3. Inside the vaccination booth, there were two health officials and both were busy talking on their phones.
As per the allegations levied by the victim, after she received the first dose from one of the two vaccinators in the room, she was injected with another vaccine shot despite her objection. She noted that both the health workers were busy on their phones throughout the vaccination process.
The woman, however, has not shown any adverse side effects of the vaccine as yet, but her husband said the health department will be responsible if anything happens to his wife. The woman was asked by the health officials to take some rest at the camp for an hour, and they told her to not worry about the incident.
However, this is not the first time such an incident has occurred were there was negligence shown on the part of health workers. In a similar incident last month, a woman in Bihar identified as Sunila Devi was accidentally administered shots of both Covishield and Covaxin each in a span of five minutes.
However, the officials said that the 63-year-old woman was doing fine and has been kept under the observation of a medical team.
In a more recent incident, a 63-year-old man was allegedly inoculated with two doses of vaccine in Kerala in a span of a few minutes in Alappuzha. The man alleged that he faced medical issues after receiving two doses of the COVID vaccine on the same day.
