CDC: Mishandling of flu, other vaccines led to 2018 outbreak

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Federal health officials have concluded that a 2018 outbreak of infections in three states was caused by the mishandling of flu and other common vaccines. The CDC says about 100 patients were affected during workplace vaccination events in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. The vaccines were administered by a third party provider, “Location Vaccination” from late 2018 to 2019. Dr. Paul E. McLaughlin was put on probation by the state medical licensing board in 2019. His wife was the owner of the vaccine provider.
