Australian who got FOUR Covid jabs with Pfizer AND AstraZeneca vaccines explains how he beat queues 

How a 34-year-old Australian got FOUR Covid jabs making him fully vaccinated with Pfizer AND AstraZeneca as he boasts of ‘antibody maxxing’ – and explains the way he beat the queues

  • Sydneysider Tom Lees received double doses of both Pfizer and AstraZeneca 
  • His simple trick to getting both was just to queue up in the lines at vaccine hubs
  • He’s dubbed the double dosing ‘antibody maxxing’ and it took him three months
  • He believes NSW Health won’t turn away anyone who’s willing to queue for a jab 

Sydneysider Tom Lees had his fourth Covid vaccine shot on Monday afternoon after doubling up on both Pfizer and AstraZeneca jabs, despite only being 34.

But Mr Lees insists he’s not jumped the queue for his jabs and merely lined up to wait his turn at vaccine hubs to complete his ‘antibody maxxing’, as he’s dubbed it.

‘If the Delta variant wants to test its strength, it should come down to Greater Sydney,’ Tom tweeted with a picture of a certificate of his Covid vaccinations. 

Alongside a video of his jab journey, he added: ‘This may be the greatest work of art to have emerged from the pandemic. A triumph of the free man over bureaucracy.’

Medics say doubling up with first and second doses of both vaccines could provide maximum protection against Covid, and Mr Lees set his sights on pulling off the double, beginning with his first dose of AstraZeneca on March 31.

Sydneysider Tom Lees (pictured)  had his fourth Covid vaccine shot on Monday afternoon after doubling up on both Pfizer and AstraZeneca jabs – and he’s only 34. Mr Lees insists he’s not jumped the queue for his jabs and merely lined up to wait his turn at vaccine hubs to complete his ‘antibody maxxing’, as he’s dubbed it.

Since then he’s received a second dose of AstraZeneca and now both doses of Pfizer, with his final Pfizer dose administered on Monday at the vaccination hub at Sydney Olympic Park.

‘As for queue jumping, I don’t see it like that. I haven’t stolen any vaccines,’ he told news.com.au. ‘I literally lined up in the queue to get it. Getting vaccinated takes a bit of leg work and anyone can do it.

‘Pay attention to where the vaccines are available, be it GP or the vaccination centre at Olympic Park, and just go there and ask to be vaccinated. It worked for me.

‘NSW Health are not going to turn away the vaccine keen. The impression I get is NSW Health are not interested in being vaccine police for the federal government.’

Research into the efficacy of doubling up vaccines is still at an early stage but an Oxford University study into single shots of each type shown promise.  

The ‘Com-COV’ trial included 830 volunteers aged over 50 and showed an AstraZeneca jab followed by a Pfizer jab four weeks later was almost as good as a double dose of Pfizer alone.

Reversing the order though was less effective – and a double dose of Pfizer still produced the best results in the fight against Covid.

However the study did not research the effects of Mr Lees’ double-dose of both vaccines and their affect on antibodies against the disease. 

But Mr Lees says he now plans to go to his GP to get a blood test lab analysis on the affect the full menu of vaccinations has had on his Covid resistance.

He summed up his motivation in a single tweet midway through his mission: ‘Doing whatever it takes to get my dirty 30s back.’
