In a Friday news conference, health official also said a volunteer improperly vaccinated two children despite the shot not being cleared for young minors.

The details come after the state previously announced that roughly 2,400 COVID-19 vaccine doses had been wasted in Shelby County over the past month due to miscommunication and insufficient record-keeping inside the local health department.

The county had also built up nearly 30,000 excessive vaccine doses in its inventory.
