A young woman in Italy recently went to get her COVID-19 vaccination but ended up leaving with a lot more than she wanted.
The 23-year-old woman was accidentally given six shots of the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine recently.
How did that even happen, you ask?
According to Malay Mail, quoting a report by CNN, a health worker accidentally filled a syringe with an entire bottle of the vaccine, which had six doses and injected the woman.
No issues so far
Noa hospital spokesperson, Daniella Gianelli, said the nurse only noticed her mistake after seeing five empty syringes.
She added that following the mistake, the woman, an intern in the hospital’s psychology department, was kept under strict observation for 24 hours and was later discharged with no issues.
An internal investigation is underway to determine the cause of the incident.
The spokesperson, however, said that it was “maybe just human error, definitively not on purpose.”
What a mistake to make!
