Loudoun County, Va., is in the news again, but this time it’s not about raucous school board meetings or parents being branded terrorists. According to Washington News4, 112 young children were given the wrong dosage of the COVID-19 vaccine—one meant for adults—at a Ted Pharmacy in Aldie.

Dasha Hermosilla told News4 that her 7-year-old daughter was given a dose of the vaccine meant for those 12 and older.

The Loudon County Health Department’s “clinical guidance” document notes that the 0.3 ml dosage that the children were given “is authorized for individuals 12 years and older only” and the approved dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children 5-11 is 0.2 ml.

The dosage for young children comes with an orange cap. Hermosilla’s daughter received the one with the purple cap. “She said the pharmacist told them it was OK,” the news outlet reported.
