Tens of thousands of residents of Germany, the federal state of Brandenburg, received false reports on June 16 about their full vaccination cycle.
On that day, June 16, 460 thousand people received such letters from the Ministry of Health, but only 382 thousand were fully vaccinated among them, according to the BZ Berlin edition. The rest received only the first dose at vaccination centers, but by mistake they were sent an email with a QR code. It is estimated that the number of recipients may exceed 100,000.
This is not the first unfortunate incidentthat occurred during the vaccination campaign in Germany. In April of this year, as our publication said, the nurse made 6 shots against coronavirus with saline. An employee of the German Red Cross accidentally broke the ampoule of Pfizer / BioNTech and, fearing repayment, replaced the drug with saline. Six people received vaccinations. The incident was reported by health officials from Lower Saxony, where the incident took place in a vaccination center in the Friesland region.
Only a few days later, the nurse shared the incident with a colleague, and he informed the management. Health authorities report that saline is not harmful to health, but it is necessary to determine who exactly received a harmless injection instead of vaccination. This will require antibody tests.
And in January in the German city of Stralsund, in the northeastern state of Mecklenburg, 8 people from a nursing home received a five-fold vaccination with BioNTech. The senior staff were 66-82 years old. The incident was reported by the administration of the district where the institution for the elderly is located. Its head Stefan Kert said:
“I deeply regret what happened. This situation is associated with a single error. I wish all the victims that they do not have serious side effects. “
Four of those vaccinated soon after being vaccinated developed flu symptoms and were admitted to hospital for precautionary reasons. The three spent only one night there. Today they have all been discharged, and their health is not a cause for concern. Governor Stefan Kert said he was “glad they returned home in good health.” According to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency, he added:
“BioNTech sees no risk. Already in the first phase of the study, higher doses of the vaccine were administered without serious consequences. “
