Walgreens says vaccine mix-ups are rare after an Indiana family claimed that their children were given coronavirus shots rather than flu shots.
The family told WFIE in an exclusive interview that their two children, who are 4 and 5 years old, were mistakenly given full adult doses of the Pfizer vaccine rather than flu shots at a Walgreens in Evansville.

The mix-up allegedly occurred on Oct. 4.
Due to privacy laws, Walgreens told FOX Business that it isn't allowed to comment on specific patient events but that patient safety is its "top priority" for the company and it takes such matters very seriously.
"Generally speaking, such instances are rare, and Walgreens takes these matters very seriously," Walgreens said in a statement. "In the event of any error, our first concern is always our patients’ well-being."
