Teachers given insulin instead of H1N1 vaccine in medication error

Some teachers at a school in Wellesley, Massachusetts school — Schoenfield School — became ill after they were accidentally given a shot of insulin instead of H1N1 vaccine. The school is investigating how the staff administering the vaccinations mixed up the flu vaccine with the insulin they had on hand to give to diabetic students.

All of the teachers given the insulin were treated at a local hospital and released.
