Man In New Zealand Took 10 Doses Of Covid-19 Vaccine In A Day For Money


A man in New Zealand took ten doses of Covid-19 vaccine, he was allegedly paid to impersonate other people.

According to news website Stuff, the man is now under investigation and NZ health ministry is “aware of the issue”. The man have visited several vaccination centers in one day and took 10 doses of vaccine.

The man was reportedly paid to take shots on behalf of other people, pretending to be the individuals who had allegedly hired him, it is unclear about how much was he paid to take those vaccine shot.

In response to the media queries NZ health ministry said “We are taking this matter very seriously. We are very concerned about this situation and are working with the appropriate agencies”.

The Auckland vaccinologist Helen Petousis-Harris told Stuff that studies did not cover such excessive doses so it was difficult to predict what might happen to someone who had 10 vaccines in a single day.

Mr Harris said the man was likely to feel rough for a day or two as his body mounts an immune response to the multiple vaccines. “It’s unbelievably selfish,” she added. Another expert said the actions were “silly and dangerous”, Stuff reported.

“To assume another person’s identity and receive a medical treatment is dangerous,” Koornneef was cited by the New Zealand Herald as saying.

“This puts at risk the person who receives a vaccination under an assumed identity and the person whose health record will show they have been vaccinated when they have not.”

Immune expert in NZ said, the man is unlikely to die from jabs but having so many doses could mean the vaccine doesn’t work as well and people who have had more vaccine doses than recommended should seek clinical advice as soon as practicable.
