A 60 year old man in Germany caught getting 90 covid-19 shots to forge vaccination cards to sell

A man in Germany was detained after getting himself inoculated against COVID-19 at least 90 times.

The man was detained in the German city of Magdeburg on Sunday, April 3rd, according to authorities. He didn’t get the immunizations for the sake of his health, but rather to collect vaccine cards to sell.

His name could not be revealed to the public because to German privacy regulations, but police claim he received dozens of doses at vaccination centers in the eastern state of Saxony for months before being arrested.

The individual was apprehended at the vaccination center for the second day in a row, carrying blank vaccination cards, which police confiscated.

Police say he was not detained because receiving the vaccines is not a crime, but he is being investigated for unauthorized issuance of vaccination cards and document forgery.

“Most of the time, your risk of serious side effects does not increase if you get extra doses of a vaccine,” the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says on its website.


Any risk is related to the time interval between them rather than the vaccine themselves, the CDC said.


“In these cases, it is the spacing of the doses, not the number of doses, that creates the risk,” the CDC said, referencing pneumococcal vaccine and the DTaP for diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis, but not COVID. “These reactions can be unpleasant, but they are not life-threatening.”

At least 130,029 people have died of the novel coronavirus in Germany to date.
