Man gets 5 doses of 3 different coronavirus vaccines just to make sure that he is covered. Somehow a man in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro reportedly managed to get a staggering five doses of three different vaccines in the space several weeks.
Official records state that the man who has not been named began be vaccinated for COVID in May. He managed to get multiple jabs before being caught out by vaccination staff as he attempted to get yet another jab.
According to reports he got his first shot of Pfizer early in May. In June he managed to get a shot of AstraZeneca then went on to a Coronavac jab. In July he allegedly managed to get a second dose of Pfizer and another Coronavac jab too. As reported Globo, officials initially believed that the man had a glitch on his record but an investigation was carried out by the Municipal Health Department in Rio.
“The case is being investigated to identify whether it was a failure to register the man’s previous doses in the system, or some other ‘irregularity,’” Rio’s Municipal Health Department said.
The preliminary investigation suggests that this is not a system error and the man has actually had multiple COVID jabs.
In other COVID news, trouble for tourists as NHS Covid pass still not recognised in some EU countries. Popular tourist destinations such as Spain and France though have been accepting the NHS app.
Some British tourists are experiencing difficulties trying to prove that they have been vaccinated as they travel throughout Europe. This is due to a delay in the NHS Covid pass being linked to the EU system. According to reports this is due to the fact that there were gaps in the application filed by the British government to Brussels.
Once the systems are linked together it will mean that automatic recognition is assured across the 27 member states. This would aid both international travel and allow travellers to easily access establishments that require proof of vaccination.
