After a mix up in which more than 40 patients received an antibody treatment rather than a COVID-19 vaccine, the Boone County Health Department will not receive anymore vaccines until after a visit from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.
Last week, some Boone County residents received the antibody at a clinic hosted by staff from the Boone County Health Department.
No harm is expected to come to those patients.
According to the DHHR, the intent of its visit is to provide agency leadership and clinical personnel with recommendations for improving patient care and the utilization of agency resources.
Vaccines will still be made available to community partners such as through the federally qualified health care center, Madison Medical, as well as through community vaccination events.
