Aged Care Residents Given Vaccine Overdose

Two aged cared residents in Queensland have been given a Pfizer vaccine overdose.

Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt has confirmed that an 88 year old man and a 94 year old woman was given four times the amount of vaccine.

“The safeguards that were put in place immediately kicked into action and a nurse on the scene identified the fact that a higher than prescribed amount of the dose was given to two patients” – Greg Hunt

What lesson can we learn from this about the entire program?
