THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: An 84-year-old woman was administered two doses of the Covid vaccine in a gap of 30 minutes. The woman who got the two shots has been identified as Thandamma Pappu of South Vellarappilly.


The incident was reported from the hospital at Aluva in Ernakulum.


Thandamma Pappu, who was accompanied by her son for the vaccination, said, "I was given the first dose and I returned from the room and when I was outside, I told my son that I forgot my footwear. So when I returned to take my footwear, a lady official came and said to me to leave the footwear and come inside.”


"She did not even care to hear what I was saying and she took me inside and asked me to sit on a chair and no sooner had I done so, another lady came and gave me the second shot," said Pappu.


Later when she repeatedly told about receiving two doses, she was asked to sit in a room for an hour.


After the doctors found out that things are all well, she was allowed to return home.


She said after that incident, health officials called her a few times to find out how she has been, and she told them she was perfectly fine. A few months back, a similar incident took place at Alappuzha.
