Mixed drugs: at least one baby was accidentally injected with the vaccine against COVID-19
On Thursday, September 23, Turkish social media users were furious at statements by Ege University School of Medicine professor Zafer Kurugöl, who said that children, including infants, were accidentally vaccinated against COVID-19 in Izmir province. Writes about it Duvar English.
“Sometimes clinics mix up hepatitis vaccines and give young children COVID-19 vaccines,” Kurugol said.
The professor noted that accidental vaccinations did not cause any negative side effects in children, and said that antibodies were developed in babies as young as one month old.
“We will soon publish these results in a renowned medical journal. Even young children, and in high doses, had no problems with side effects, ”he stressed.
A day later, the professor reported that the vaccination he spoke of was possible as a result of a single incident in Turkey, which, he said, was not in Izmir.
“Both the Ministry of Health and the judiciary addressed the incident that occurred about three months ago,” Kurugol said, completely changing his story.
The one-month-old baby in question was taken to Aegean University after being vaccinated against COVID-19, as the medical faculty is best equipped in the area.
“We carefully observed the child in order to make sure that he was healthy,” the professor emphasized and clarified that the baby's heart and kidneys are working normally and that no abnormalities in their functions were found.
The professor then explained why he had solved the incident. He wanted to emphasize that COVID-19 vaccines are not harmful even for a small child.
In addition, Kurugöl apologized for “any wrong statements” he may have made.
