    In a bizarre incident, a woman in Bihar identified as Sunila Devi was accidentally administered shots of both Covishield and Covaxin each in a span of five minutes. However, the officials said that the 63-year-old woman was doing fine and has been kept under the observation of a medical team.

    According to reports, Devi was administered with Covishield jab first after the due registration process. She was then asked to wait for five minutes and being unaware of the process, she stood in the second queue which was for the Covaxin jab.

    The woman is a resident of Awadhpur village. The incident reportedly took place on June 16 in the Punpun block of rural Patna in Bihar. Following the incident, a team of medical experts have been deployed to the camp to investigate. They have asked for an explanation from the two nurses who administered the vaccines to Devi.

    If Devi continues to show no adverse symptoms, she will be tested for antibodies after 14 days, a senior health official at AIIMS Patna has said. The woman has now demanded strict action against the alleged negligence.

    Meanwhile, the staff at the Centre has denied these allegations. 

    "The first attempt to vaccinate her was withdrawn when some blood began to pop out. It is called a prick. The nursing staff then located another spot on her arm and vaccinated her with the first dose. She presumed that she was vaccinated twice, which is not true at all," said Chief medical health officer (CMHO) Dausa, Dr Manish Chodhary, adding that proper vaccination protocol was followed.
