At least two California children were left ill after a clinic administered the wrong dose of coronavirus vaccine to 14 children.
“I’m here tonight to report my story because it’s unacceptable; you expect your doctors to give you the right doses,” parent Denise Iserloth said. told ABC7.
Iserloth said she took her two children, aged eight and 11, to a Sutter Health pediatric vaccine clinic in Antioch over the weekend, where they received 20 micrograms of doses instead of the recommended 10.

In all, 14 children who visited the clinic on Saturday received the wrong dose.
Sutter Health said in a statement that it warned the parents of the error, explaining, “As soon as we found out about this, we contacted the parents and advised them on CDC guidance in this situation.”
But Iserloth said she was not aware of the error until 10 hours after the shots were administered. Both of her children stayed home from school on Monday with bad stomach pains, and her oldest child fell twice in the hours after the shooting.
“I understand the order, I tried to carry it out, and my kids have now received a double dose and I don’t know the long-term side effects,” Iserloth said.
Her husband, Shawn Iserloth, added that the couple “assumed there was more in place to prevent that from happening, but obviously at this location it wasn’t.”
A local doctor told ABC 7 that the children should be in order, and the symptoms should calm down after a few days. He added that children were tested with 10, 20 and 30 micrograms during clinical trials.
“Headache, muscle aches, fever in some cases, chills, but they should go away in a day or two. So I would say hold on tight, don’t worry too much and that’s all expected,” Dr. Chin-Hong said.

According to the CDC, patients who receive a vaccine with the wrong dilution volume may experience more arm pain, fatigue. , headache, or fever in response to the dose given, “Dr. Jimmy Hu, president of the Sutter Health COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force, said in a statement.
