Donkey Of The Day For Monday, November 15th goes out to a Virginia Pharmacy for giving the wrong dosage of the COVID-19 Vaccine to a 7-year-old girl. A mother brought her daughter to their local pharmacy where they placed the wrong cap on her meant for children 12 and up. The Pharmacy did not confirm nor deny that there is currently an investigation going on.
One would think that the pharmacists would know that they are giving the patient the wrong vaccine given that their only job was to get the person's order right. The worst part about the whole story is that they didn't have the children's formulation and we're giving children a third of the adult formulation trying to workaround which is not authorized by any means.
Please give this Virginia pharmacy the biggest Donkey of The Day for serving up the wrong order of the COVID-19 Vaccine.
