Improper Storage and Handling May Be Cause of Infections Resulting from Vaccinations in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana
Vaccinations are a hot topic across the United States. In the state of Washington, the cases of Measles have gone up, and many believe these cases are linked to children who have not received the Measles vaccination. In another part of the country, vaccinations may be to blame for the development of infections in some patients in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana. According to the Kentucky Department of Health, vaccinations given by Location Vaccination, a vaccine provider, at various businesses throughout Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana, have caused injection-site infections in many patients who have received vaccinations since September 1, 2018. Kentucky’s public health notification demonstrates that multiple types of vaccinations are at issue.
What is Causing These Injection-Site Infections?
Some patients have experienced pain, swelling, redness, and the development of lumps/nodules at the vaccination injection site when receiving vaccinations from Location Vaccination. While it is unclear specifically why some patients are developing infections following vaccination, the Kentucky Department of Health believes improper storage and handling of the vaccinations may be to blame, and not the vaccination itself.
Patients suffering from an injection-site infection are supposed to seek immediate medical attention, as the infections may not go away on their own. So far, patients have not suffered any significant injuries beyond local injection-site infections. However, because all patients are different, it is certainly possible that one patient may become severely ill. Additionally, not all cases of infection may be reported to the local departments of health in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana. Furthermore, not only are patients suffering from infections, but they are all receiving vaccines that are likely ineffective. As such, patients are encouraged to get re-vaccinated elsewhere to ensure proper effectiveness.
