A woman from Thane claimed she was administered three doses of Covid-19 vaccine within minutes at a vaccination centre in Anandnagar on Friday.
The 28-year-old woman narrated the incident to her husband who an employee of the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC). The husband then raised the issue with the local corporator. The civic body also provided support and monitored the woman’s health.
The woman, wished to remain anonymous and said she was not interested in filing a complaint as her husband worked for the local civic body.
The woman’s husband said his spouse was not familiar with the vaccination process as she was getting a Covid-19 vaccine for the first time. She had a fever on the day she got back-to-back shots, but it subsided the next morning. She is doing fine now.
A team of doctors went to the victim's house and found her in good health. Committee was formed to investigate the matter.
A delegation of BJP leaders cornered Thane Municipal Commissioner Bipin Sharma and slammed him for negligence by the vaccination centre staff.
In light of the incident BJP MLA Niranjan Davkhare said, "How did such a grave oversight happen? How did the staff members not notice that the same woman was vaccinated thrice? We have demanded strict action against those responsible."
The civic body officials are now probing the incident and strict action will be taken against those found guilty.
