Man In New Zealand Takes 10 COVID Shots In Single Day
Dec 14, 2021
The New Zealand authorities are investigating a man who was vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus up to ten times in one day.
According to news.com.au, the man, who took the COVID-19 vaccine on behalf of other people has been called “unbelievably selfish” and sparked an investigation.

Group manager operations for the COVID-19 vaccine and immunisation programme in New Zealand, Astrid Koornneef said the country’s Ministry of Health was aware of the issue and taking the matter very seriously.
“We are very concerned about this situation and are working with the appropriate agencies,” she said.
The ministry would not say where in New Zealand the incidents took place.
Vaccinologist and associate professor Helen Petousis-Harris called the behaviour “unbelievably selfish” and could cause harm to himself.
She said that the man who took multiple doses of the COVID-19 vaccine is unlikely to come to any serious harm, but likely to feel bad the next day from a general immune response.
“We know that people have in error been given the whole five doses in a viral instead of it being diluted, we know that has happened overseas, and we know with other vaccines, errors have occurred and there have been no long-term problems,” she said.
However, she further explained that receiving multiple doses of the COVID-19 vaccine is not ideal, saying when people get given higher doses, they get more fever, pains and headaches.
This is so selfish! Please, don’t do this!
