The Incredible Hulk star Lou Ferrigno was hospitalized on Wednesday after a routine vaccine shot went wrong, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal!
The bodybuilder — best known for portraying the huge green superhero on the TV from 1977 to 1982 — went to his local pharmacy for a pneumonia shot on Wednesday, but it was administered wrong and his bicep blew up — landing him in hospital.

“They hooked him up to all sorts of drips and treated him and it went down. He’s out now, but it wasn’t a great experience.
“He’s much better which is good because he’s going to be honored at a black tie event in Hollywood tonight, we’re walking the red carpet!”
Carla said she couldn’t remember specifically what the hospital diagnosed Lou with.

He added in a tweet from hospital: “Went in for a pneumonia shot and landed up here with fluid in my bicep.
“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.”
