Scottish Labour’s health spokeswoman Jackie Baillie last night called for an urgent inquiry as it emerged four children were given Covid vaccine overdoses more than twice the approved amount.
It is believed the youngsters were aged between five and 11, and were clinically vulnerable.
Ms Baillie said: “Kids getting adult doses is pretty serious, especially when it is not a one-off.
“We don’t know the implications and there needs to be proper monitoring of these children. They can’t be left to cope with quite severe side effects on their own.
“There also needs to be an urgent inquiry.”
