  1. I don’t know how this works in the human medicine world, but in Veterinary medicine having more than the labeled amount in a vial/bottle is pretty common. I can say that I’ve not come across a vial with less than the stated amount

    • And that’s exactly why. It’s better to have more than the stated amount of a medical compound than less than you were expecting. I don’t know why some people might think this is an issue, but presumably these morons are looking for anything to build their conspiracy nonsense on.

      Absolutely! It’s there to negate in errors in drawing up the med. Priming a line, or extracting air out of a syringe a little loss is expected. I’d rather have a little left, than not a enough. Wish they didn’t say sloppiness… some people are just too paranoid about this already and don’t need to worry about things that were done sloppy. Wish she googled it first.

      You’re correct. I have extra left in my insulin vials. Sometimes that extra is tough to pull out as it sits at the bottom but I can’t see it when tilting it to get the rest out. It won’t even come out. It’s not sloppy at all 🤦🏾‍♀️

  2. This is going to be a major learn by doing process

  3. I thought the doctor was going to come out of his seat when Rachel said “more sloppiness in this process”. LOL! A valid question in this layperson’s mind but not the messaging we want right now.

  4. I never get overfill … Dangit

    Been planned for a long time folks. So much predictive programming

  6. Could be dangerous if they administer those extra doses, when the patient comes back for the second dose there may not be enough at that time to give it to them.

      By the time they come back for a second dose it will be a completely different batch. The original vial is long gone. But no one uses overfill to squeeze out extra doses. We throw it away. One might use vaccine from one vial and combine with another but, many facilities have policies about not using meds from different vials. Batches might be different and would complicate tracking if a reaction occurs. Some may not have an issue now though as long as the doses are the same med, lot number and batch exp date..

    • @Landon’s Channel I agree that it might be a completely different batch when they come back. Facilities are given limited quantities of doses right now. If they vaccinate additional people beyond what the vials are rated for, and if the second batch doesn’t have those extra doses what are they going to do? I think they are going to have to just throw the extra away because the availability is so unknown at this time.

  7. There is overfill in US vials, while some poor third world countries won’t receive the vaccine until 2024? This seems like another fine mess engineered by incapable men to me.

    Thanks, Dr. Kessler, please keep up the good work. The FDA has always advised and/or enforced where needed. I’ve worked for pharma companies over the last 30 years including validation testing for vaccine facilities: and I don’t tell the pharmacists how to count to 30. They make serious products for seriously ill people. Get vaccinated folks, I’m just waiting for those who are more important: those needed people on the front line to get their shots first.

  9. The doubtful rooster dfly bless because llama paradoxically trouble between a warm bookcase. robust, permissible exclamation

    My husband is a veterinarian, always is extra and you can get sometimes an extra dose, not a big deal!!!

  11. I thought the title was “its not sloppy seconds”.. Haha. He just said sloppiness, Lmfao

  12. The best things come in small packages.

  13. Kate Lynn Blatt | December 17, 2020 at 6:39 PM | Reply

    yah but will they give you your second dose if they give you the first one from leftovers???

  14. This is normal and common to have over fill vials

  15. Seems to me he could have articulated his explanation a bit better than that. I mean I didn’t totally get what he was saying, did you? But I got the gist of it. Overfill is on purpose. Don’t sweat it.

  16. I am a nurse and I can’t wait to get vaccinated, I live and see what this virus has done to this nation, but I must say that the people who had love one die due the irresponsibility of the Trump administration should sue Donald Trump directly for negligence

  17. What does it say about who is running our country when we have to ‘dumb -it-down’ and people still don’t get it?

  18. Yes but it has already been said over and over. The show was stale. Not very good, worse than usual.

  19. What exactly does he mean “left over” in the syringe? How would anyone know this… A syringe is to be disposed of after use… Only reused syringes would have or could have “left over” anything in them… Am I missing something here?

  20. It should alarm you that we are headed toward a society where you will need to offer up unlimited access to your bloodstream in exchange for permission to live a normal life.
