Young women ‘dress up as grannies’ in bid to get COVID vaccine in Florida
Two women in their 20s allegedly dressed up as elderly women and went to a vaccine distribution site in an effort to get vaccinated.
Dr. Raul Pino, the director of the Florida Department of Health in Orange County, said the two women showed up Wednesday at the Orange County Convention Center vaccine site.
Pino said the women were wearing bonnets and gloves. He also said the women had already received their first doses, so it appears their efforts were successful the first time around
“So yesterday, we realized a couple of young ladies came dressed up as grannies to get vaccinated for the second time. I don’t know how they escaped for the first time, but they came vaccinated. The bonnets, the gloves, the glasses, and they were probably in their 20s” Pino said.
The county has been running the site and doing about 2,500 appointments a day vaccinating people 65 and over.
