CLALLAM CO., Wash. — Inmates and a staff member at the Clallam Bay Correction Center were given the wrong type of medical treatment on Thursday. 

Twenty-three incarcerated people and one staff member were given Regen Cov instead of a COVID-19 vaccine dose. 

Regen Cov is a medication used to treat COVID-19 patients. 

The Department of Corrections said no one has had any serious adverse reactions, but the department is continuing to monitor all of those involved. 

The DOC has also initiated a review to determine what led to the mixup.
