A 62-year-old man in Germany intentionally got 217 doses of COVID-19 vaccines within 29 months. The vaccinations occurred outside of a clinical study, and after hearing about the "hypervaccinated" man, medical researchers in Germany reached out to him to run tests.

The researchers first learned about the man, who they say got the vaccines "deliberately and for private reasons," when a public prosecutor in Magdeburg, Germany, opened a fraud investigation, according to a study published in The Lancet medical journal on Monday. The prosecutor confirmed 130 of the vaccinations and ultimately did not file criminal charges against the man.

The researchers sent a proposal to the man and the prosecutor saying they wanted to investigate the potential impact on his immune system from getting so many of the shots.
