A famous Hollywood celebrity is in the hospital after he reportedly experienced a series of horrific adverse effects following a pneumonia vaccination.

Lou Ferrigno, the 67-year-old who played the Hulk in The Incredible Hulk, tweeted a picture of himself lying in a hospital bed with IVs attached to his arm, along with a caption of strange details explaining what happened.

“Went in for a pneumonia shot and landed up here with fluid in my bicep,” Ferrigno stated. “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.”

CDC-approved pneumonia vaccines come with serious side effects

What Ferrigno meant by his swab and package comments remains largely unclear. It appears as though Ferrigno may have received the wrong vaccine, seeing as how there are two types of vaccine for pneumonia currently approved for use by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

There’s PCV13 and PPSV23, both of which are recommended for adults like Ferrigno who are 65 years of age or older. The vaccines are marketed as helping patients avoid infections from various pneumococcal diseases, including meningitis, bloodstream infections, pneumonia, and ear infections.

Both shots are known to carry side effects, though PCV13 is said to cause additional problems in terms of swelling, according to the CDC.

Other reports suggest that Ferrigno may have received the correct vaccine, but that it somehow became contaminated once leaving the package and entering his arm.
