A family, including two kids aged 4 and 5, were administered adult doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at Walgreens.
CNN quoted Wallgreens' spokesperson Chris Lathan's statement given to them saying that the privacy laws prevented Wallgreens to comment on a specific event. The statement further read that in the event of any error, Walgreen's first concern was always their patients' well-being and that their multistep vaccination process included safety checks to ensure minimal human errors from their pharmacy staff. However, Wallgreens did not deny the incident ever happening but refrained from commenting on how the incident occurred.
As per the latest reports, the children's health is being rigorously monitored and further updates on their health are awaited.
