2 women dress up as grandmas to get the corona vaccination – and have (almost) success
This is how vaccination takes place in Lucerne
Once the scam was successful – on the second attempt it was exposed: Disguised as senior citizens, two younger women wanted to get corona vaccinations in the US state of Florida. Health official Raul Pino portrayed the episode at a press conference on Thursday to make it clear that Orange County has no shortage of people willing to vaccinate. “We even have people who pretend to be old in order to be vaccinated,” said Pino.
On Wednesday, the two women were noticed in the vaccination center, who disguised themselves as “grannies” with hoods, gloves and glasses and – with valid vaccination cards from the health authorities – wanted to get their second vaccination doses. “I don’t know how they got away the first time,” said Pino.
US media published videos of police officers’ body cameras confronting the women and denouncing their “selfishness”. “You’ve lost someone’s vaccination who needs it more than you,” one grumbled. The women do not have to fear criminal consequences, reported the New York Times. The y were not vaccinated again. (aeg / sda / dpa)
