The patient, who is from Tuscany, Italy, is said to be in good condition and would receive fluids and pain relievers after yesterday’s infection.

Overdose studies of the US-made vaccine have been limited to just four doses, the AGI news agency reports.

The incident in Tuscany was reported to the country’s medical regulator.

Meanwhile, Italy recently hit their goals of administering half a million shots in a single day.

Nearly 17 million Italians have received at least one dose of a Covid vaccine while more than seven million have received two injections.

Last month, it emerged that Italian officials were investigating whether Mafia thugs were redirecting the blows to their corrupt friends rather than the vulnerable in the country.

By April, health workers had received 3.1 million doses, while a total of 2.4 million had passed into an opaque category called “other”.

Now the Italian anti-mafia commission has said it is concerned that the high rate of beatings in this “other” group in parts of the south of the country means that the gangsters “are managing the vaccinations”.

Commission chief Nicola Morra ordered four regions – Sicily, Calabria and Campania to the south and the Aosta Valley to the north – to pass on their jab data and explain their deployments.

Mario Giarrusso, of the anti-Mafia commission, told Politico: “People are being vaccinated who do not fall into any priority category specified by the government, especially in some areas where the Mafia is high density, and we suspect the mafia is handling vaccinations. “
