Write-up: Patient verbally confirmed twice that she was to receive Pfizer. I checked her card and made sure the dates of 1st and 2nd shot made her eligible for a 3rd dose. I overlooked the fact that it was Moderna on her card. I gave the vaccine and turned to fill out the card. That is when I noticed that the first two shots were another mRNA (Moderna). I told the patient that I gave her Pfizer and she was supposed to stay in the Moderna dose series. Patient was not alarmed at all. She said she was actually glad she received Pfizer. I apologized and of course will double check going forward. I check them every time. I am not sure what made my attention draw away from checking the series. Patient is not harmed or upset.
