A woman in Italy accidentally received six doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at one time, according to news reports.
The 23-year-old woman did not experience any serious side effects from the vaccine overdose, according to CBS News.
The incident occurred on May 9 at the Noa Hospital in Tuscany, Italy. The nurse administering the vaccine accidentally injected the woman with an entire vial of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. Each vial contains six doses.
The error occured because the nurse apparently thought that the vial she was injecting had already undergone a necessary dilution step. Before the vaccine can be administered, each of the six doses is taken out of the original vial and put into a new vial, where the dose is diluted.
“She thought that the dilution had taken place,” Dr. Tommaso Bellandi, director of patient security for the northwest Tuscany health authority, told CBS News. “They are both transparent liquids of the same density. Unfortunately, this contributed to the error.”
The nurse quickly realized her mistake, and the patient was monitored for 24 hours at the hospital. She was given fluids and fever-reducing medications as a preventive measure.
The only side effect the woman experienced was pain at the injection site. She was released from the hospital on May 10.
The hospital has launched an investigation into the error.
Several other cases of COVID-19 vaccine overdoses have made headlines in recent months, including the case of a 91-year-old man in Ohio who went into shock after he received two COVID-19 vaccine doses in one day.
And in April, 77 inmates at the Iowa State Penitentiary in Fort Madison each received up to six times the normal dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine due to human error, according to the Des Moines Register.
None of the inmates required hospitalization, but some experienced sore arms, body aches and fevers, the Register reported. The two nurses who were administering the vaccine at the prison have been placed on leave during an investigation into the incident, officials said.

How is that even possible?!? . . . Is that PLACE being run by Left Wing Liberals? Just ASKING. One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump And His Allies 2020 – MAGA (WE’RE NOT going away!).
why would anyone in their sane mind give overdoses?????????????? YES-THEY SHOULD BE PENALIZED FOR THAT-THATS RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why would anyone in their right mind take the shot??????????
If you’re ignorant enough to take the shot, it’s not a vaccine no matter what all the morons are telling you, you deserve what ever happens to you. I don’t wish ill will on anyone but you need to take personal responsibility for what you let happen to you. Oh buy the way, this is the first time ever that a pharma company cannot be held liable (meaning they can’t be sued even if it causes a death) for any averse effect from their shot. Take the shot at your own stupid risk.
THATS RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT-PROSECUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The overdose victims , even imcluding t6hse in the jailhouse might in any case have groungs for filing a lawsuit . In each case …..someone may possibly be fired over this swort of fiasco !!!!
Of course they had no SERIOUS reactions according to CBS. Well that cinches it for me. If CBS said it was all okay than it must be!!!! She’s probably already six feet under or will be in a few days. Does anybody NOT SEE that the medical vaccine zealots have no idea what they are doing? Is one dose enough? Is two doses too much? We may need boosters as people are not showing immunity. Maybe the whole vial should be the norm. Well we’re not sure. We’ll circle back on this after we see how many deaths we need to cover up.
Must have been a dud. My husband was the sickest he has been in his 72 years after the 2nd Moderna vaccine. We thought he was not going to make it. Now people who are fully vaccinated are getting Covid because the vaccine does not work. Those who took it are all just guinea pigs for the vaccine makers.
