Fears of contaminated vaccine batch after people across Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana contract infections

Fears of contaminated vaccine batch after people across Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana contract infections

Fears of contaminated vaccine batch after people across Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana contract infections
Vaccinations are causing infections in three states, prompting fears a batch was contaminated.
‘Multiple people’ have developed rashes, pain, redness, swelling and hard lumps in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana.
It transpires all of them received vaccines produced by Kentucky-based provider Location Vaccination since September 2018.
Health officials insist there is no issue with the vaccine supply, but they blame ‘improper storage and handling of the vaccine’ at Location Vaccination, a firm operating in a barn in Mount Sterling, Kentucky.
‘If you received vaccine from this provider, we strongly encourage you to consider getting another round to ensure you are fully immunized and not at risk for contracting illness,’ Dr Jeff Howard, public health commissioner for Kentucky, said on Friday.
‘We believe negative side effects associated with this investigation to be linked to improper storage and handling of the vaccine.
‘We want to emphasize that there is no evidence to suggest that there is an issue with the vaccine supply.
‘The provider has stopped vaccinating and there is no continuing risk to the public.’
Location Vaccination provides a myriad of vaccines, largely to businesses in central Kentucky but also across state lines.
It’s not clear which vaccines triggered reactions, what the offending contamination was, or exactly how many people were affected.
Health officials say any vaccines provided by Location Vaccination should be returned and destroyed due to contamination risk.
The firm, still under investigation, has stopped administering vaccines but health officials warn people who received one could still develop infections, and should be on alert for side effects.
Doctors are urging people to still get vaccinated as flu season drags on.
