Loudoun County pharmacy gave the WRONG vaccine to over 100 children

Virginia’s Department of Health has just confirmed that a Loudoun County pharmacy has been giving the wrong vaccine to over a hundred young children, ages 5-11:

FOX 5 DC – The Virginia Department of Health has confirmed that a pharmacy in Loudoun County incorrectly administered the COVID-19 vaccine formulated for those 12 years and older to children aged 5-11 years old.

VDH believes that 112 children aged 5-11 years old were impacted by this situation on Nov. 3-4 at Ted Pharmacy in Aldie, which resulted in these children receiving a lower dose than recommended.

On November 5, state and federal authorities ordered the pharmacy to discontinue administering the vaccine, and VDH subsequently collected all COVID-19 vaccines at the pharmacy.

Officials instructed the pharmacy to notify parents about next steps, including the recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding whether patients should restart the vaccine series or receive a correct second dose.

Imagine you’re the parent who gets the news that your 8-year-old got the wrong vaccine, one that isn’t made for your child’s age group. If I were someone who took that risk, I’d be ballistic. Lawyers might even be involved.

What’s really ridiculous about this is that 5-11 year olds don’t even really need it. And now at least 112 children in Loudoun County got one that could actually do them harm because it wasn’t made for them.
