In Germany, several people inoculated with BioNTech/Pfizer coronavirus vaccine have been infected with COVID-19.
It is noted that the infected lived in a nursing home in the German city of Hagen (North Rhine-Westphalia). As explained by a representative of the city administration, immunity to COVID-19 is formed only 7-10 days after the first vaccination. A total of two injections of the vaccine must be administered. “It’s possible to get infected during that time,” she said.
In December, eight nursing home employees in Germany mistakenly received a five-fold dose of the coronavirus vaccine. The wrong dose was administered to seven women and one man between the ages of 38 and 54. They all work in a nursing home in the northeastern German city of Stralsund and received the vaccine as a priority when mass vaccination began in the country. It is noted that no serious side effects were detected in the victims. Nevertheless, four of them were hospitalized with mild symptoms.
Vaccination against coronavirus in Europe began on December 27. In the first stage, each of the European Union countries will be able to vaccinate less than five thousand people from priority population groups.
