Update on COVID-19
Nobody is counting vaccine doses anymore. But COVID-19 is still here, remaining among the top five leading cause of death for older and immunocompromised individuals.
In April 2022, a German man was caught at a vaccination center in Eilenburg, Saxony when he showed up for a Covid-19 shot for the second day in a row. It is believed he got himself vaccinated at least 87 times in a bid to sell fake vaccination certificates. It was not possible to find any information about wellbeing of this person since April 2022.
A nurse in Tuscany, Italy redefined “shots on the house” after accidentally giving a patient a staggering six doses of the coronavirus vaccine — in a single shot. The female recipient is fortunately in stable condition following the mishap, CNN reported.
Thankfully, overdosing on anti-COVID serum isn’t as catastrophic as it sounds for many people - at least in the short term. There are many reports of unauthorized extra boosters in VAERS - with no side effects. In early Pfizer studies, participants received five times the normal dose without exhibiting any adverse reactions. In a similar case in April, 77 prisoners in Iowa State Penitentiary in Fort Madison were accidentally administered six COVID shots sans experiencing any major symptoms. 52 out of 77 inmates sought a $1 million payment but were denied it.
Still, many adverse reactions were reported not only after the primary (# 0969219, # 0982883) doses, but also after the 5th (eg,# 2392080), 6th (# 0938990, # 0982883, # 2606023), 7th or more (eg # 0903656, # 0907535, # 2452148) but not the previous doses in VAERS. Other anecdotal reports claim that the 6xth dose fixed the problem from the previous doses. And there are many breakthrough COVID-19 reports even after the 7th dose (eg, # 2601725).
