A medical staff at a hospital in Jeonju, Jeollabuk-do, accidentally vaccinated an elementary school student with the Corona 19 vaccine.



The health authorities are investigating the circumstances of the hospital, saying, "Domestic minors are not eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine so far."



According to the Jeollabuk-do Province, yesterday (13th), a pediatric and adolescent medical team in Deokjin-gu, Jeonju, vaccinated Pfizer vaccine to group A (12) who visited the hospital.



Group A was found to have received the vaccine after visiting the hospital to treat eye sty with her mother.



At that time, group A's mother was away for a while to go to the bathroom.



The health authorities reported that group A entered the injection room knowing that he was calling when the medical staff called the inoculator.



The hospital said, "I did not know that I was an elementary school student because of my large body," and "the medical staff misunderstood the vaccination," it is known that he admitted his negligence.



Group A is currently resting at home without any major adverse reactions.



An official from the provincial health authorities said, "I don't understand why the medical staff made such a mistake, although anyone can tell the difference between 19 and 12-year-olds (the subject of vaccination). We will thoroughly guide you through the manual.”
