October 4, 2014, I went to Walgreen's, Downers Grove, IL to receive a tetanus shot. I received the wrong shot and was given a flu shot in error.
Hana Malik,APN, administered the wrong vaccination and never apologized to me. She said her manager would call me later that day or on Monday to follow up with me. Angela Bower her manager never called me back until I filed a complaint with the Walgreen's Executive Assistant. In addition, Walgreen's submitted the claim to my health care provider for the wrong vaccination.
My advice be extremely careful when using Walgreen's Healthcare Clinic. These people don't care about their patients or instituting safe practices in administering vaccinations.
To never call me back was unconscionable and indicated to me their lack of concern. Please consider using another immediate care facility for vaccinations!
