Care home residents injected with salt water instead of Covid vaccine – METRO

Several care home residents in Scotland expecting to receive their dose of the coronavirus vaccine were instead injected with salt water.

Some 11 residents at Millbrae Care Home, in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire, were mistakenly given a saline solution used to dilute the Pfizer vaccine once removed from freezers, according to the The Sunday Mail.

Trudi Marshall, Health and Social Care North Lanarkshire nurse director, told ‘None of the residents who received the vaccine diluent came to any harm and they were re-vaccinated on the same day.
