Health Officials Urge Action Concerning Vaccination-Related Infections
Anyone with symptoms of an infection who received a vaccination through the Mount Sterling-based Location Vaccination is urged to contact a health care provider. The infection is not likely to persist without treatment, health officials said.
According to a press release distributed Friday afternoon from the Cabinet for Health and Family Services and the Department of Public Health the provider offered vaccinations at businesses in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana beginning Sept. 1, 2018.
Location Vaccination is owned and operated by Fairshinda Sabounchi McLaughlin under the medical license of Dr. Paul E. McLaughlin.
Symptoms of infection can include redness, pain or tenderness, swelling, and the development of hard lumps, or nodules, at the injection site.
Health officials reported that Location Vaccination has stopped administering immunizations. However, it is still possible for individuals previously vaccinated to develop an infection. Symptoms may start from a few days to more than 12 weeks after vaccination.
Health officials say medical care is advised since infections will likely not get better without treatment.
According to the press release, any businesses who believe Location Vaccination (or anyone representing this company) provided vaccination to their employees should notify their employees immediately and contact the Department of Public Health at (502) 564-3418
