Kroger mistakenly used empty syringes instead of COVID-19 vaccine at Midlothian store

Allison McGee, director of corporate affairs at Kroger Mid-Atlantic, said a member of the Kroger “small clinic” team used empty syringes instead of syringes containing the COVID-19 vaccine. She described what happened as a “blatant mistake”.

Earlier in the day, McGee said that a saline solution was injected instead of a vaccine, but officials later stated that “after a thorough investigation” they learned that “the patient was given an empty syringe.”

“The TLC team immediately solved this problem. All vaccinators received training and reminded us of the current vaccination policy,” said McGee.

Kroeger didn’t say exactly how many people were affected, but he told CBS6 it was “few people.”

“All affected customers have been contacted and have now received the COVID-19 vaccine,” McGee said in a statement. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by customers.
