A 6-month-old baby was vaccinated against Covid-19 in Chile.
Local media reports said a mother took her 6-month-old baby to a family health center in the town of Tirua in the Bio Bio region to complete their routine vaccination, and the baby was mistakenly given the Covid-19 vaccine developed by Sinovac. The Tirua family health unit also acknowledged that the baby had been vaccinated against Covid-19.
It was announced that the baby’s parents had been informed of the wrong vaccination and that the baby was being monitored for control purposes. So far, no side effects have been found in the baby, officials said, while the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
It has previously been revealed that a group of people in Chile who received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine were given a second dose of the Sinovac vaccine.
“Obviously, we are sorry that this error occurred during the vaccination of 10 people in the San Bernardo (southern part of Santiago) region. But these are specific cases. We are clarifying the situation.”
Paris announced that they would be revaccinated with pfizer, but that the second dose would be done 21 days later, not immediately.
