In a shocking incident, a man was administered an anti-rabies medicine instead of Covid-19 vaccine at a medical centre in Maharashtra's Thane district.
Taking a stern action against the medical negligence, a doctor and a nurse of the facility were suspended, a civic official said.
The local resident Rajkumar Yadav, who was administered anti-rabies medicine, had went to the civic-run medical centre in Kalwa area in Maharashtra's Thane disrtrict on Monday to get a Covid-19 vaccine against the coronavirus infection.
Reportedly, he stood in a wrong queue. After being vaccinated, he was informed that he was administered the vaccine against rabies, a spokesperson of the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) said.
Soon after he got to know about what happened with him, he panicked. As per reports, the man is fine and has not shown any complications, the official said.
Later, he complained to the authorities. Likewise, a woman doctor, who was in-charge of the medical centre, and a nurse were suspended, on the basis of preliminary enquiry, for the goof-up.
The medical centre is located in a slum colony of Kalwa. It provides vaccination against various diseases to people in the area.
