Two boys, ages 6 and 7, mistakenly received adult doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at a clinic set up by the Garland Health Department at a church Halloween celebration, the city says.
“I’m very angry, I’ll be honest,” said Julian Gonzalez, the father of the 6-year-old boy. “All I can do is for the moment be level-headed and hope he’s OK.”
Gonzalez and several other adult family members went to the event to get boosters for themselves.
Gonzalez’s son was with them.
“And we’re waiting and one of the workers there who was working at the vaccine station said, ‘By the way we have the vaccine already for the kids available now,’” Gonzalez said. “We said, ‘Really?’ They said, ‘Yeah.'”
So they agreed.
“They even had a form prepared that had an option to choose the vaccine for the child. It just seemed like everything was prepared and ready for that,” Gonzalez said.
