Woman gets 6 doses of COVID-19 vaccine at once

By Rachael Rettner - Senior Writer about 19 hours ago

The woman was mistakenly injected with an entire vial of the vaccine.

A woman in Italy accidentally received six doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine all at once, according to news reports.

The 23-year-old woman did not experience any serious side effects from the vaccine overdose, CBS News reported.

The accident happened Sunday (May 9) at the Noa Hospital in Tuscany, Italy, according to CBS News. The nurse administering the vaccine mistakenly injected the woman with an entire vial of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, which contains six doses.

The error happened because the nurse thought that the vial she was injecting had already undergone a necessary dilution step — before the vaccine can be administered, each of the six doses is taken out of the original vial and put into a new vial, where the dose is diluted, CBS News reported.

"She thought that the dilution had taken place," Dr. Tommaso Bellandi, director of patient security for the northwest Tuscany health authority, told CBS News. "They are both transparent liquids of the same density. Unfortunately, this contributed to the error."

The nurse quickly realized her mistake, and the patient was monitored for 24 hours at the hospital. She was given fluids and fever-reducing medications as a preventive measure, according to CBS News. 

The only side effect the woman experienced was pain at the injection site, and she was released from the hospital Monday (May 10), officials said.

The hospital has launched an investigation into the error.

One more reason to keep your mask up and to get vaccinated.

Erectile dysfunction risk is 6 times higher for men with covid 19

Don't be limp, use protection by getting the vaccine and mask up.

 

Coronavirus may cause impotence by persisting in the penis, small study suggests

COVID-19 Endothelial Dysfunction Can Cause Erectile Dysfunction: Histopathological, Immunohistochemical, and Ultrastructural Study of the Human Penis

https://wjmh.org/DOIx.php?id=10.5534/wjmh.210055

Quote

This study is the first to demonstrate the presence of the COVID-19 virus in the penis long after the initial infection in humans. Our study also suggests that widespread endothelial cell dysfunction from COVID-19 infection can contribute to resultant erectile dysfunction. Future studies will evaluate novel molecular mechanisms of how COVID-19 infection can lead to ED.

More than 48 hours since my 2nd jab. Not much reaction other than the sore arm at injection site. Think my needle lao hong liao. Saw they took it from a tray on the table, not from a fridge or ice box. Don't know sitting in room temperature for how long.

Three weeks after he had been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, a science journalist in Delhi developed high fever, a sore throat and a general feeling of discomfort.

On 22 April, Pallava Bagla tested positive for the coronavirus. Four days later, a chest scan showed his clear lungs turning white, a sign of infection.

As the fever persisted, he was admitted to hospital - eight days after his first symptoms.

At the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, doctors put Mr Bagla, 58, through blood tests and administered steroids. As he had an underlying condition - diabetes - his blood sugar soared. Luckily, his oxygen levels never fell perilously low.

Before he left the hospital after eight days, doctors showed him a scan of the lungs of an unvaccinated, diabetic, male Covid-19 patient of his age, and compared it to his scan.

"The difference was clear. The doctors told me that if I had not taken the vaccine I would have probably landed up on the ventilator in critical care. Timely and full vaccination saved my life," Mr Bagla says.

Probably some of us older folks didn't get any immune response. Maybe should delay for a few weeks more.

MOH studying if second dose of Covid-19 vaccine can be given later, to give more people first dose: Ong Ye Kung

Quote

Experts overseas and in Singapore believe that the two doses of the vaccines can be spaced further apart - up to six to eight weeks instead of three to four weeks currently - without affecting their efficacy, he said at a press conference to announce home-based learning for Singapore schools from May 19.

But those who already have an appointment for their second dose of the vaccine will not be affected. "This is a strategy for phase two of our vaccination exercise moving forward," Mr Ong added.

S'pore delays 2nd Covid-19 vaccine dose to 6-8 weeks later; those aged 40-44 can register for jabs from Wednesday

Quote

Those who already have vaccination appointments for their second shot will not be affected, he added. But those who wish to voluntarily push back their second shot, so that another person can get his first dose, can do so.

The lengthened two-dose regime will begin from Wednesday, said Mr Ong, who stressed that the second dose will still be needed, and given, for maximum protection.

What a waste !

Such a sin to let them expired, when many elsewhere are scrambling for vaccine.
