Australia Woman claims she received the WRONG Covid vaccine after a mix-up
A Terrible Conundrum for the AstraZeneca Vaccine
For the moment, reports of a very rare, dangerous blood disorder among recipients cannot be ignored.That’s why the past few weeks have felt so catastrophic.
An aged care worker has been left bed-ridden after she allegedly received the wrong second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
The worker reportedly received the Pfizer vaccine for her first dose but was given the AstraZeneca vaccine for her second injection at the Health Matters Karalee medical clinic in Queensland today.
The woman, aged in her 50s, only realised the mistake after receiving a pamphlet from doctors and nurses following her second jab.
The clinic allegedly kept the woman under observation following the injection for an hour while checking her blood pressure twice.
Australia's rollout of AstraZeneca Covid vaccine will NOT be paused
Australia's rollout of the AstraZeneca vaccine will continue despite growing fears the jab could be related to a blood clotting condition reported in some patients. Acting Chief Medical Officer Michael Kidd has dismissed suggestions the vaccine poses any serious threat and the government's medical advice remains unchanged despite a man being hospitalised with a rare blood clotting condition after receiving it.
She was later sent home with an ice-pack to help with an ongoing headache.
The woman has reportedly suffering with nausea, dizziness and body aches since the late afternoon.
Health workers at the clinic are 'not sure' what the potential side effects for the mix-up will be for the woman allegedly, as she is the first person in Australia this has happened to.
The clinic told her to go home, watch for symptoms and call an ambulance if she has an adverse reaction.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Health Matters Karalee Clinic for comment.

Right now, America is in the simplest stage of its vaccination campaign: getting shots to people who want them. But many Americans are still reluctant to get a vaccine—especially those living in rural areas, who tend to be politically conservative and are among the most fervently opposed to inoculation. Public-health leaders will soon have to refocus their efforts toward the next and more difficult stage of the campaign: persuasion.
