A major medical goof-up took place in Uttar Pradesh when three women were allegedly administered anti-rabies vaccine instead of Covid vaccine on Thursday.

The three elderly women in the age group of 60 to 72 reached Kandhala Community Health Centre of Shamli to get their first COVID jab. Due to medical negligence, one of the women, whose condition started to deteriorate, was rushed to a private hospital for treatment.

A health worker asked these women to get a syringe of Rs 10 each from outside and later they were given the anti-rabies injection.

When the women approached a private doctor, he revealed that the woman has been given anti-rabies vaccine at the health centre.

A local NDTV reporter, shared the news on Twitter and stated that the pharmacist responsible for the negligence has been suspended.

“Three elderly women in western UP’s Shamli out to get the #COVID jab at a govt hospital were instead given the anti rabies vaccine in a major goof up , the @UPGovt has acknowledged . A pharmacist has been suspended,” the tweet read.

District Magistrate Jasjit Kaur has ordered an inquiry into the incident. Speaking to The Hindu about the incident, Kaur told the publication, “An inquiry has been ordered and the SDM [Sub-Divisional Magistrate] and Additional Chief Medical Officer have been asked to submit their report by evening. The responsibility will be fixed, and action will be taken against the erring officials”

In a follow-up tweet, one of the women narrated their ordeal.

The affected women complained to CMO Shamli Sanjay Agarwal demanding action against the health workers responsible for the goof up.

Earlier in the week, a nurse in UP made the mistake of giving two shots of the vaccine to a woman instead of the prescribed single dose. As the enquiry of the case is still pending, the officials admitted the negligence committed by the nurse. She was reportedly busy on a phone call while vaccinating the woman. Read more here.
