The West Virginia National Guard admitted Thursday that 42 people expecting to receive the Moderna vaccine for COVID-19 were instead accidentally given the Regeneron antibody used to treat infections.
The mistake occurred at a vaccination clinic hosted by staff at the Boone County Health Department, and all of the people who accidentally received the wrong product are being contacted by the department, the National Guard said in a statement.
Regeneron has been touted by President Trump as helping to cure him of COVID-19 when he contracted the virus in November.

With antibodies, you go right to the punch.
A vaccine is the first step on the road to your body creating those antibodies.
So basically, you're just skipping a step or two.
But in the long run, the vaccine is the way to go. Your body will create it's own antibodies that will do the exact same thing as what they just injected into those people. But your body will remember how to make those antibodies the next time the virus is present in your system. Making the infection much less severe or non existent.
And this does sound like a mistake. But it might be a good idea to be absolutely sure what you're injecting into someone's body.
