What would you do if your child received the wrong vaccine? Unfortunately, a mother’s worst nightmare became a reality when she took them to get vaccinated for the flu at Walgreens.

What they got was actually the Pfizer vaccination for COVID. I know mistakes happen, but goodness! This isn’t a mistake that we can afford to make. This is a primary reason why I personally would only go to a doctor’s office for vaccinations, but mistakes like this can just as easily happen there also.

The children have been sick with a fever and a cough and the pediatric cardiologist for the family is saying that both children are suffering from heart problems.

Heart problems are not a rare thing. This is happening to adults as well, yet people don’t seem to care much about that side effect and it’s mostly because the media tries to pretend that it doesn’t exist.

Getting the jab is, of course, a decision you should make based on your risk to reward ratio. Talk it over with your doctor.

Walgreens have only said the following in a statement released on Monday:

“Due to privacy laws, we cannot comment on specific patient events. However, in general, such instances are rare and Walgreens takes these matters very seriously. In the event of any error, our first concern is always our patients’ well-being. Our multi-step vaccination procedure includes several safety checks to minimize the chance of human error, and we have reviewed this process with our pharmacy staff in order to prevent such occurrences.”

This is a catastrophic disaster and if this were any other business screwing up in such a manner that could honestly be deadly for the children, that company would be shut down.

Imagine if the family had gone to a restaurant and instead of putting a normal drink into a glass for the kids, the person serving the drinks accidentally put some sort of poison into it. That business would be shut down in a heartbeat, but since it’s Walgreens and because it is a vaccine, I don’t expect anything much to come out of this.
