Vaccine blunder at GP surgery23rd January 2008
More than 2,500 patients at a GP surgery in Lincolnshire have been told that their vaccines may not have worked.
A routine check at the Littlebury Surgery in Holbeach showed that the flu, travel and childhood vaccines had not been stored at the correct temperature.
Patients are being contacted and asked to return for another vaccination. A spokesman for the Lincolnshire Teaching Primary Care Trust apologised to patients and said there had been no evidence of illness as a result of the ineffective vaccines.
