Thakugaon woman hospitalised after getting vaccinated twice in one day
A woman has been "mistakenly" administered two doses of Covid-19 vaccine at Baliadangi Upazila Health Complex in Thakurgaon, health officials said today.
Fensi Akter (39), wife of Tajim Uddin of Chhotasingia village in Charol union of the upazila, was admitted to the health complex as she fell sick after being vaccinated twice on Tuesday.
Fensi said she went to Baliadangi Upazila Health Complex to get the second dose of Covid-19 vaccine after receiving an SMS.
The on-duty nurse first injected Fensi with a dose of Sinopharm vaccine. Then within a minute, another nurse pushed another dose of the vaccine into her arm before she could say anything.
Baliadangi Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer Dr Abul Kashim said vaccine seekers are crowding the booth and they are struggling to handle the crowd every day.
"The woman is fine now but she is feeling sick due to anxiety over receiving two jabs," said the doctor.
