‘A group of 36 children have been given a higher-than-normal dose of the Covid vaccine by mistake.

The children, aged between five and 11, were vaccinated at a children’s only pop-up jab clinic at Start Point in Sholing, Southampton, on Wednesday.

Solent NHS Trust apologised, said it was taking the issue “very seriously” and that an investigation had begun.

Chief medical officer for the trust, Dr Dan Baylis, said: “We are very sorry this error occurred and we have contacted the parents of the children involved to apologise for the mistake and share support and guidance should their child experience any mild side effects such as tiredness or a headache.‘
