The Singapore Ministry of Health released figures showing that there were 130 cases of people in Singapore receiving the wrong doses of the Covid-19 vaccines, as reported by Channel NewsAsia.
However, none of the affected parties suffered severe adverse reactions, and those who did experience some form of reaction from the incorrect doses, have since recovered without hiccups.
7 out of the 130 cases were children between the ages of 5 and 11, with the remainder being all adults, of which some had adverse reactions but had recovered smoothly.
119 people received less than the ideal dosage, while 11 others received more than the ideal dosage, as or 26 September.
Last month, it was also reported that two patients had received a whole vial of undiluted vaccine at a Hougang clinic, which is worth about 5 doses of the vaccine.
One of the affected patients suffered from headaches and a rapidly increasing heart rate, while the other patient’s experience was uneventful.
The doctor responsible for the lapse has since been suspended from the National Vaccination Programme until further notice, along with the clinic.
Janil Puthucheary, the Senior Minister of State for Health, also said that MOH licenses and regulates all providers under the programme.
He added that there are protocols in place for the occurrence of vaccination errors, which include daily monitoring and systematic investigations.
On the Hougang clinic incident, it is still being investigated by MOH.
