Veterinaries in Chile allegedly vaccinate people using canine intended version of corona virus vaccine
Santiago, April 21 2021: According to the Seremi health authority in Chile, two veterinarians are now under investigation for allegedly administering the dog version of the corona virus vaccine to people, months before the human jabs even arrived in the country.
The version of the virus that affects dogs is not the same as the human SARS-CoV-2 version responsible for the current pandemic. The vaccines were administered to at least 75 people in the northern city of Calama according to health officials. Suspicious visiting health officials notices some workers at veterinary clinics working without masks last September and when asked why that was, they said they has been given the vaccine against the virus at a local veterinary clinic. The actual human vaccines arrived in December. Another vet had also given the canine vaccine to some more people.
Rossana Diaz, the health secretary for the Antofagaste region said, “This is very dangerous. There are studies saying that the effects in humans can be local, as in irritation… or systemic.”
The vets were fined by the local health authorities but they failed to comply and the two cases came to light this week when health officials reported to prosecutors that the vets had failed to pay the fines. A total of 75 people including miners and health workers received the dog intended vaccines.
The approved first human intended corona vaccine dose has been delivered in Chile to some 7.7 million people, out of a 15.2 million target population. With a total of 1.13 million coronavirus infections and more than 25,000 deaths.
