Some given wrong vaccine dose after Papa John’s Hepatitis A scare
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Mecklenburg County Health Department has announced that some people who may have received a Hepatitis A vaccination following a scare at a northeast Papa John’s restaurant in March, may have been given the wrong dose of the vaccine, according to WSOC-TV.
According to a Health Department spokesperson, “During the recent Hepatitis A vaccination clinics related to an ill worker at a Charlotte area Papa John’s, a small number of people were inadvertently given the incorrect dose of the vaccine. This means that in some cases an adult dose was given to a child or a child dose was given to an adult.”
The Health Department said it is informing all those who received the incorrect dose and added that no known health risk is associated with this type of incident.
Adults who received the child dose of the vaccine are being asked to return to the Health Department to receive the adult dose.
