A woman named Sunila Devi in Bihar was administered with both Covaxin and Covishield shots at an interval of five minutes. multiple media reports said on Saturday. The 63-year-old woman is a resident of Awadhpur village and she received both of the jabs at the Beldarichak middle school vaccination camp in rural Patna.
She is said to be in stable condition and is under the observation of doctors. Devi is said to have been inoculated twice “by mistake”.
Following this, a team of medical experts have been deployed to the camp to investigate. They have asked for an explanation from the two nurses who administered the vaccines to Devi.
According to reports, Devi was administered with Covishield jab first after the due registration process. She was then asked to wait for five minutes and being unaware of the process, she stood in the second queue which was for the Covaxin jab.
However, in an India Today report, Devi claims that she told the second nurse about the first jab, but the nurse insisted that, “another jab will be given in the same hand”. She is now demanding strict action against the alleged negligence in the report.
