OREANDA-NEWS. In Lithuania, the patient of the Marijampole hospital was injected with five doses of the coronavirus vaccine by mistake of doctors. The director of the medical institution Mantas Chesna notes that nothing bad happened to the woman.

The patient is now feeling well, 15min.lt reports. The only thing she complains about is severe pain at the injection site.

An investigation is underway into the incident. It is noted that due to the incident, four people did not receive a vaccine against COVID-19.

It is worth noting that a similar case has already happened in Germany. Eight nursing home employees mistakenly received a five-fold dose of Pfizer. In any case, those who received a multiple dose of the vaccine were hospitalized in the Schralsund nursing home. The danger is increased by the fact that everyone who received the vaccine is between 66 and 82 years old.

Four of the vaccinated have symptoms similar to the flu, said the head of the Western Pomerania region administration, Rügen Stefan Kert. He expressed regret over the mistake. Kert added that this is a single individual error. The official also expressed the hope that he would do without serious side effects, RIA Novosti reported.
