Udo “incredibly selfish” attitude and open investigation. This is the dramatic observation made by the New Zealand authorities and the country’s immunologists in the face of a case that has caused a lot of ink to flow: that of a man who was being vaccinated against Covid-19 instead of other individuals. According to information reported by the New Zealand Herald Saturday, December 11, the individual would have been paid to receive these doses of serum. In a single day, he was even vaccinated ten times against Covid-19.
New Zealand health authorities clarified that people opposed to the anti-Covid vaccine had paid this man in order to be able to benefit from a health pass, mandatory to access certain places. The Stuff site specifies that the man would have received his various doses from several vaccination centers. Cited by the New Zealand Herald, the coordinator of the vaccination campaign in the country, Astrid Koornneef, indicated that the Ministry of Health was taking the matter very seriously: “We are very concerned about this situation and are working with the appropriate agencies. “
A risk of a stronger immune response
To the local media, a vaccinologist clarified that the individual who received all these doses was in no danger. However, he may develop a higher fever, as well as a headache, due to the stronger immune response his body could trigger with such a number of doses. According to her, the behavior of individuals willing to pay for these kinds of services is particularly dangerous because, by presenting a false vaccination status, they can continue to spread the virus.
