Three elderly women were allegedly administered anti-rabies injections instead of Covid vaccines at a community health centre in Uttar Pradesh’s Shamli district on Thursday.

Saroj Verma, 70, Anarkali Devi, 72, and Satyavati Devi, 60, had gone to the community health centre for the vaccination on Thursday. “Saroj began vomiting after around 20 minutes,” said Awadhesh Singh, a neighbour of Anarkali and Satyavati.

“One of them called us and we took her to a private hospital, where a doctor checked the chit she had been given at the community health centre. It was written on the chits of the women that they had been administered anti-rabies injections,” Awadhesh added.

The three women have sent a written complaint to Jasjeet Kaur, the district magistrate of Shamli.
