Thousands at Oakland Coliseum received wrong vaccine dosage, medical staff say

Thousands of people who visited the mass vaccination site at the Oakland Coliseum received the wrong vaccine dosages this week, raising questions about the effectiveness of the medication, according to two medical workers who contacted KTVU.

People who received too little of the Pfizer doses received their vaccines on Monday before 2 p.m. But at that point, the issue was identified and was stopped by that evening, according to the EMTs, who asked to remain anonymous in order to keep their jobs, and which was confirmed by state officials. That is the only day and time period in question. 

One EMT estimated that 4,300 people had been given the shots by then. A total of 6,000 people can be vaccinated at that site during the weekdays. 

State officials dispute the notion that anyone will be less protected by the smaller vaccine doses, although another infectious disease expert said there’s not enough science to prove that yet. The claim comes at a time when people nationwide are clamoring to get vaccinated, and as shortages and confusion about making appointments and who is eligible, abound.
