A Kroger's clinic in Virginia mistakenly injected customers with empty syringes Monday rather than giving them the actual COVID-19 vaccine.

Fewer than 10 customers who were scheduled to receive the vaccine at The Little Clinic, one of the company's walk-in clinics in Chesterfield County, were impacted by the mistake, a Kroger spokesperson confirmed to FOX Business.

“The TLC location at our Midlothian, Va., store injected a small number of patients with empty VanishPoint syringes instead of the COVID-19 vaccine," the spokesperson said.

Originally, the company thought the customers were injected with saline rather than the vaccine, calling it an "honest mistake," WTVR reported. But it turned out that the syringes had nothing in them at all.

The professional who had administered the blank shots thought that all of the syringes had been properly filled with the vaccine prior to the appointments, according to the outlet.
