The man got the first dose on February 13 last year and subsequently he went literally mad to get more and more shots.

He got the second shot on March 13, followed by third shot on May 19, fourth on June 16, fifth on July 24, sixth on August 31, seventh on September 11, eighth on September 22, ninth on September 24 and the rest after that the same year.

Last week, the man had rushed to a local health centre located in Chausa block of his home district to get the twelfth dose when he was caught. The man has reported no side effects of the repeated vaccination.

The health department has ordered an investigation as to how he managed to get so many does without being caught earlier.
