The Incredible Hulk’s Lou Ferrigno Hospitalized After Pneumonia Vaccination Goes Wrong
Lou Ferrigno is recovering after a pneumonia vaccination went wrong.
The Incredible Hulk actor, 67, shared the news to his social media accounts on Wednesday, revealing that he ended up in the hospital after he was allegedly incorrectly administered a pneumonia vaccine.
“Went in for a pneumonia shot and landed up here with fluid in my bicep,” he tweeted alongside a photo of himself lying in a hospital gown with IVs in his arm.
“I’ll be ok but it’s important that you keep an eye on who’s giving the shot and make sure they not only swab the spot correctly but that you watch the needle come out of the package,” he advised.
He also shared the news to his Instagram account, adding the hashtags “#neveradullmoment #tips #shots #hospitalvisit #louferrigno #illbeok”
Reps for Ferrigno did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
While it is unclear what specific shot was given to Ferrigno, there are two types of vaccines that fight against pneumonia, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC).
