A wrong formulation of the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine was administered to over 100 people at the Aviva vaccination centre in Dublin last week.
The Times has reported that 126 people were affected by the error, which occurred on July 6th.
The incident saw distilled water used to dilute the vaccine dose instead of saline solution.
HSE Community Healthcare East Chief Officer Martina Queally said, “there was an incident concerning the reconstitution of vials of Pfizer vaccine at the Aviva Vaccination Centre on the morning of Tuesday, 6th July”.
“Vaccinations were temporarily paused as a safety measure while the pharmacy addressed the issue and vaccination service resumed shortly after.”
“A small cohort of people will need to be re-vaccinated as a precaution. The individuals concerned have been contacted by the HSE to have appointments arranged.”
