Adverse Reactions: Walgreens ‘accidentally’ gives children Wuflu shots

Let this story be a warning to Americans everywhere. If you go for a flu shot, expect to get the Wuflu shot.

In yet another story of such skullduggery, parents from Indiana say their two children are suffering adverse reactions after they were given an adult dose of the Pfizer Wuflu vaccine at Walgreens.

This has been reported as a mistake. Like back in September when a 4-year-old was “accidentally” given a Wuflu vaccine at a Walgreens.

Fox News reported the story:

A 4-year-old girl in Maryland was given the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine instead of the seasonal flu shot she was scheduled to receive at her local pharmacy, according to a report by the Baltimore Sun.

Victoria Olivier brought her daughter to get the flu vaccine to a Walgreens in Baltimore, where a pharmacist mistakenly administered her an adult dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

The vaccine has not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for children under 12.

Phil Caruso, a spokesperson for Walgreens, told Fox News in an email that patient safety is the company’s “top priority.”

“Events like this are extremely rare and we take this matter very seriously,” Caruso wrote in a statement. “We are in touch with the patient’s family and we have apologized. Our multi-step vaccination procedure includes several safety checks to minimize the chance of human error. We’ve recently reviewed this process with our pharmacy staff in order to prevent a future occurrence.”

Hey, it’s all good. Walgreen’s apologized. For what, I’m not sure.

For experimentation of an experimental drug on a child? With the understanding that the parents can’t sue the manufacturer or the government for this mistake.

And what are the far-reaching implications for the child? I wish I were on the jury for a case like this.

Next, how about that comment about safety being a “top priority.” It’s a simple thing to know one medication from another. And it might be believable, if it didn’t keep happening.

Like the case of Joshua and Alexandra Price.

This couple took their four-year-old son and five-year-old daughter to Walgreens for the flu shot a week ago. However the children and parents were given the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Again, Walgreens says this was a mistake.

“When they called us and told us that they had made a mistake and had given us the wrong shot, I was just in shock,” Alexandra Price said, CNN reported. “All I could say to them was, ‘What does this mean for my kids?’ “

The parents say that their children, Sophia and Lukas, are experiencing side effects from the vaccine. And the reason for the side-effects is supposedly that it is only approved for ages 12 and older.

“The children have experienced a number of adverse effects since receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Fever, body aches, cough, headaches, and nausea are among the symptoms the children are experiencing,” Prices’ attorney, Dan Tuley, said in a statement.

“The 4- and 5-year-old are also under treatment of a pediatric cardiologist for tachycardia and elevated blood pressure, respectively,” he added.

Who knows what this “mistake” will do for these children, given their underlying health issues.

Joshua said Lukas started to feel sick even before the family left the store that day, according to CNN. Supposedly this is due to getting three times the dose that would be recommended to kill an adult.

I remind you that of the 73 million kids under the age of 17, only 323 have died from Wuflu in 18 months. Parents can do as they wish. But as far as I’m concerned, getting a child a shot for Wuflu is bad parenting.

Regarding the parents’ accidental dosing, Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, Peter Hotez told CNN the shot would essentially be a booster shot for them. Because they were already vaccinated back in April.

Again, somebody providing cover for a potentially deadly outcome. But this family of vaxxers seem to be asking for it.

And now they have a lawyer to clean up their mess.

As for the rest of America, I caution you about getting a “flu” shot at Walgreens. They seem mistake-prone.
