New Zealand’s Ministry of Health is investigating the case of a man who was vaccinated up to ten times against Covid-19 on the same day. According to local media, the suspect, who visited several vaccination centers, was said to have received money to receive doses on behalf of others.
According to Astrid Kornev, Director of Collective Operations for the Covid-19 Vaccination and Vaccination Program, the Ministry of Health is aware of the problem and is taking the matter seriously. The volume did not mention the location of the episode.
“We are taking this very seriously,” Kornev told Stuff. “We are very concerned about this situation and are working with the appropriate agencies.” “If you know someone who has received more vaccine doses than recommended, that person should seek medical advice as soon as possible,” he added.
Experts point out that there is no data about the safety of receiving too many vaccines and evidence about the side effects of too many doses.
In New Zealand, people do not need to show their identity when receiving the vaccine. Health officials fear that the tightening of the process could discourage people of good will from getting immunized. According to the ministry spokesperson, the goal is not to create barriers to vaccination.
“People without some form of pictorial identity are disproportionately people in the vulnerable groups of the homeless or in transit, the elderly, the young, and the disabled,” a spokesperson for the Department of Health said.
