Two middle-aged women portrayed themselves as elderly women at a vaccination center in Florida recently.
These women, aged 34 and 44 adorned themselves in bonnets, gloves including spectacles, passing off as elderly ladies to get their second shots. They had valid documents showing they had previously gotten an initial shot, implying their ruse must have worked once before; however, they were issued with warnings and denied the second shot.
At present in Florida, individuals 65 years and older and health care personnel are being prioritized for the COVID-19 vaccination.
Dr. Raul Pino, an Orange County health official disclosed that security has been increased at vaccination sites to prevent similar and other occurrences. Possibly this ruse would get the Governor’s attention and result in opening up eligibility to the vaccines.
