Ohhhh...this just burns me!!!
We got back a response from Public Health for the reactions we encountered here. Even though the manufacturer has documented
information on post vaccine cellulitis, Public Health stated that the cellulitis was caused by "contamination of the multi-dose vial of vaccine due to improper administration. This is due to either improper cleaning of the vial stopper, not changing the needle prior to vaccination and/or not cleaning the skin properly.
" First of all, it's a unidose vial. Second we ALWAYS change the needle and third we ALWAYS clean the skin with alcohol prior to injecting.
Once again, whose fault is it? The nurses!
It's so easy to blame us when things go wrong. Grrr......
At least the doctor involved knows it wasn't our fault.
