“Young children may be getting double the authorized dose of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine — a mistake that could have serious consequences, medical professionals told The Defender.

According to a Nov. 1 U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory, the agency ‘has become aware that some healthcare providers may not recognize that the single dose vial of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (2023-2024 Formula) for use in individuals 6 months through 11 years of age contains notably more than 0.25 mL [milliliters] of the vaccine.’

The FDA said some healthcare providers ‘may be withdrawing the entire contents of the vial to administer to an individual.’ Adults receive a dose of 0.50 mL.”
