Wrong vaccination given – £66,688.40

Following the birth of her child, Miss Cole was given a Rubella immunisation in her thigh.Immediately after the injection the site became very swollen and sore and she developed an abscess which had to be surgically drained.

We carried out an investigation and discovered that the reason for the problems that Miss Cole had experienced was that she had mistakenly been given a BCG vaccination instead of a Rubella vaccination.
