Eleven hospitalised after wrong vaccine

Eleven residents of a nursing home in Laren, south of Amsterdam, have been hospitalised after being given insulin injections in mistake for the swine flu vaccine.

All the patients, who are mainly elderly, are making good progress, the Telegraaf said on Friday.
The home’s director Rachel Mak told the paper she suspected the label on the bottle containing the vaccine had not been checked properly.
