Incredible Hulk Actor Lou Ferrigno Hospitalized After Pneumonia Shot Goes Wrong

Body builder Lou Ferrigno, who took on the role of the Hulk in 1977’s The Incredible Hulk recently updated his fans on social media that he was hospitalized after a pneumonia shot went wrong.

Ferrigno explained, “Went in for a pneumonia shot and landed up here with fluid in my bicep.” He goes on to explain that he’ll be okay, but also warns folks if they plan on  getting any kinds of vaccinations this winter, “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.”

Following his stint in the hospital, Ferrigno got some great news as his son Lou Ferrigno Jr. will be following his father’s footsteps by playing a live-action comic book character. Ferrigno shared the news that Lou Ferrigno Jr. was cast to play Hourman in the upcoming DC Universe show Stargirl.

Hourman was one of the original members of the Justice Society of America. He would go on to join the Freedom Fighters as well as the All-Star Squadron. Hourman’s powers come from his own experimentation on himself. He develops a vitamin called Miraclo that grants him superhuman strength and speed for an hour.

Not only did Ferrigno share the great news about his son, but he also posted an update letting his fans know he’s out of the hospital. In fact, he attended a Smash Global event with upcoming Aquaman star Dolph Lundgren.

It’s good to see Lou safe and out of the hospital.
