Channel News Asia reports.
An employee of one of the medical institutions in Singapore was immediately hospitalized. However, he had no complications.
вЂњThe error was discovered immediately after the injection, after which the employee of the center was immediately hospitalized. No side effects were found.

Note that in Singapore, the authorities have promised to pay 10 thousand Singapore dollars ($7.5 thousand) in case of serious side effects from the vaccine. And in case of death or serious complications that will affect life, the government will pay 225 thousand Singapore dollars ($169 thousand).
