CORO VACCINE1

A man on Friday was recovering in a German hospital after accidentally receiving five times the standard dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Health authorities in the eastern German city of Schwerin told the local daily Schweriner Volkszeitung that it had been a regrettable incident, which occurred after the containers with diluted and undiluted versions of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine were mixed up.

As a precaution, the man was taken to the hospital for observation but had so far not shown any signs of problems, the authorities said. (dpa/NAN)
