NC Walgreens accidentally gave some patients saline injection instead of COVID vaccine
Imagine going to Walgreens thinking you’re going to get your covid –19 vaccination and then get your shot only to be told later that …ahhh you didn’t. Well that’s is exactly what happened to
85-year-old Joyce Funderburk was one of 22 people to get a saline injection instead of the Pfizer covid-19 vaccine at a Walgreens in Monroe. They told her it was the employee’s first day giving Pfizer shots and she didn’t know to mix the saline with the vaccine. @WBTV_News
The store immediately reached out to all impacted patients and administered a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as the impacted patients were available to return to the pharmacy.
The store says the patients will later receive their second dose within the appropriate time frame.
Barack Obama has choice words for COVID-19 vaccine conspiracy theorists
The vaccine is one of the things dominating headlines as of late and with so much information out there there is also a lot of misinformation as well. Making it difficult for some folks to make a decision on what they want to do or what they should or in this case shouldn’t do. So when Barrack Obama sat down with Shaquille O’neal and Charles Barkley he spoke on the vaccination and the conspiracy theorists.
Most Black folks who are opposed to the vaccine have expressed reservations due to the abusive Tuskegee syphilis study of the effects of untreated syphilis on Black men from 1932 to 1972.
“The irony is when you know about the Tuskegee experiment, what’s going on there is the government withheld treatment that was available for Black men for syphilis,” Obama said. “They didn’t give them medicine they needed.
“So, here’s a situation where if the medicine is available, we need to take it.”
