Man investigated in Botosani for taking the third anti-Covid shot
A 49-year-old man from Botoşani is investigated by the police for taking the third shot of anti-Covid vaccine at a vaccination point in Dorohoi. He admitted he had taken the rappel only after he had been vaccinated for the third time. The man argued he would have wanted to have more doses, for “he felt better, saw better and heard better”.
Taking advantage by the agglomeration at a vaccination point downtown the town of Dorohoi, the man stood in line and managed to take the jab before his ID paper had been checked in the computer system, Monitorul de Botosani reported.
He was kept under close medical surveillance for several hours but he has not developed any strong reaction so far.
