A man in his 30s with no underlying health conditions was offered a Covid vaccine after an NHS error mistakenly listed him as just 6.2cm in height.
Liam Thorp was told he qualified for the jab because his measurements gave him a body mass index of 28,000.
He told BBC : "I’ve put on a few pounds in lockdown but I was surprised to have made it to clinically, morbidly-obese."
It was only when he received a call back the following day that the mix-up became clear.
Rather than being listed at 6ft 2ins in height, he was registered as 6.2cm, which led to the error in his BMI.
NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group said occasional errors could happen.
