A couple in southern Indiana visited a local Walgreens last week to get flu shots for themselves and their two children, ages 4 and 5 years old. They were horrified when they learned shortly after leaving the pharmacy that all four of them had been injected with the Pfizer vaccine against COVID-19.

The pharmacy told the parents they and their two young kids were wrongly given COVID-19 vaccinations, which are not approved for children under 12 years old.
The Prices immediately took their young children to see a pediatric cardiologist, who told the couple their daughter was exhibiting high blood pressure and their son was experiencing tachycardia, which causes an irregular heartbeat.

And it’s just — no one knows what to expect, because there’s not a lot out there to help us.”
The family’s attorney, Daniel Tuley, showed WFIE-TV what appeared to be vaccination record cards, showing the children were born in 2016 and 2017, respectively.
