Residents at a care home in Lanarkshire were injected with salt water instead of the Covid vaccine, the Sunday Mail reveals. Last December, 11 patients were given saline solution after an “astonishing blunder” at Millbrae Care Home in Coatbridge. The paper says NHS Lanarkshire has “issued an apology but admitted it cannot say how many other ‘vaccination errors’ may have occurred”. The paper adds that a small amount of saline is supposed to be mixed with the pure Pfizer vaccine before it is administered.
