Evansville, IN: 4 and 5-yr-old siblings went to an Indiana Walgreens so the kids could get a flu shot. What happened next is truly a nightmare. According to the family attorney, both children were accidentally given adult doses of the Pfizer COVID vaccination.
WFIE reported – Alexandra and Joshua Price says it happened October 4, at the Walgreens on St. Joseph Avenue.
Action 5 News reports – The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is only approved for people ages 12 and older. The companies are seeking approval for use in children ages 5 to 11 with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The family’s attorney, Daniel Tuley, shared what he says are the vaccination cards given to the family by Walgreens.
They show children born in 2016 and 2017 were given a vaccine shot.
The family said they left the pharmacy thinking they had received their flu shots, but a Walgreens employee later called them and said they had made a mistake. The attorney said the cards were then issued since the coronavirus vaccine had been given. Tuley said the children have been taken to a pediatric cardiologist, and the family was told both are showing signs of heart issues.
