This after a video circulated where it is appreciated that the nurse who proceeded to apply the COVID-19 vaccine, inserted the needle into Caballero's arm, but did not press the plunger, and he withdrew without actually being vaccinated.
Health authorities attributed what happened to unintended human error.
The National Head of Nursing of the Ministry of Health (Minsa), Eusebia de Copete, who applied the dose this Wednesday to Caballero, explained that through an investigation carried out by this fact, it was possible to locate the vaccine inside one of the biosecurity boxes.
The official clarified that the team in charge of the vaccination plan apologized for the incident. "No one in this profession wants to affect those we serve in any way," Copete said.
For his part, Professor Caballero indicated that his intention was not to expose or harm the nurse who made the mistake, but to call for attention to be vigilant when attending the vaccination process.
He also urged the population to go to get the coronavirus vaccine.
Regarding the second dose of Professor Caballero, the nurses indicated that they will be applied in his residence as well.
