“Eight employees of a German nursing home were mistakenly given five doses of Covid-19 vaccine, with no serious health consequences at this stage, according to Belga News Agency.

The seven women and one man, aged 38 to 54, work in a nursing home in Stralsund, in the northeast of the country. As such, they are among the priority persons to receive the BioNTech-Pfizer vaccine, which has been administered in Germany since Saturday.

But during Sunday’s vaccination session, they were given five doses at once, the administrator of the district where the facility is located said Monday.”
