Shamli (Uttar Pradesh) : A probe has been ordered in the shocking incident in which three women were allegedly administered anti-rabies injections instead of the Covid vaccine at a government hospital in Shamli district.
Three women — Saroj, 70, Anarkali, 72 and Satyavati, 60, — had gone to the government community health centre in Kandhla on Thursday to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.
After the vaccination, the women were handed anti-rabies vaccine slips, which led to a protest by their family members at the facility.
The condition of Saroj began to deteriorate and she complained of nausea. Her family members took her to a private doctor who was aghast to see that she had been given the anti-rabies vaccine instead of the Covid vaccine.
The families have lodged a complaint with the Chief Medical Officer Sanjay Agarwal. Brijendra Singh, in-charge of the health centre has said that an inquiry would be conducted into the incident. He said that strict action will be taken against those found guilty.
