Caught on Video: Two FL Women Pose as Elderly to get COVID Vaccine

Two Florida women beat the system…or so they thought

Women

Desperation for the novel coronavirus pandemic and its effects to be over are making many search high and low for a way to get vaccinated. Two Florida women beat the system…or so they thought. “With bonnets on their heads and bespectacled faces, two young women pretended to be seniors so they could get the coronavirus vaccine” reported Orlando’s News 6.

Reportedly, the two women, 44-years-old and 34-years-old, were successful in receiving the first vaccination, but their luck ran out when they went to receive the second, and final dose. When the two women went back for the second vaccination Wednesday, “they presented a valid vaccination card” demonstrating the first dose had indeed been administered.

Dr. Raul Pino from the Florida Department of Health in Orange County said the pair was busted saying vaccinators noticed the two “looked funny” and stopped them before they could get the shots administered. “There were some issues with their IDs and their driver’s license, but I don’t know all the details about them” Pino said.

Body camera video of the encounter with deputies was released Friday by the Orange County Sheriff’s office, showing two deputies scolding the young women. “You know what you have done? You’ve stolen a vaccine from someone that needs it more than you and now you’re not going to get your second one” one deputy is heard saying.

No arrests were made and the women will not face charges but were given a trespass warning. Pino said officials will investigate if they actually received the first shot, and if so, how they slipped past officials. Currently, Florida is only vaccinating health care workers and those who are 65 and older.

    OK, just one simple question. Where in the law books does it say that they can’t get the vaccine? It only states that certain people get to go first not that you can’t try and get one yourself, and that’s not even a law. So I don’t see what they can be arrested for if everyone needs the vaccine. Isn’t everyone who want’s it going to get it in the long run? I see nothing wrong here and think that the people who administer the shots are mad because they pulled one over on them. What happens now if they die because they didn’t get the second shot like they are supposed to? Do the vaccinators at that facility get put in jail for assisted killing by not letting them get the second dose? I could keep going and going but here I stop. The only thing that I see they did wrong in not wait in line for their turn and Morally they should have waited till the elderly where done.

      They weren’t arrested, just publicly shamed as they should have been. Thank you OCSO for doing just that to the ‘line jumpers’.

        Elderly people are getting the vaccine first because they are the ones who have been dying from the Covid by the thousands… younger adults are getting the Covid but most have minor symptoms… when the two came in for second shot and turned down because they lied ..the vaccine was given to the next person in line … vaccine was not waisted

      Your an idiot…it’s as if you didn’t even watch the video. The officer stated there not going to get the SECOND vaccine (listen)…and second, yes they can get arrested. That was a center set up for seniors ONLY and they disguised themselves as seniors to cheat and get what wasn’t due to them at this time. It’s obvious that your probably a schemer as well if you think this is ok. Your probably a leftist dem as well..!

      I beg your pardon? Dems are the liars and tricksters? You’ve clearly been tricked yourself! All of us are Americans. We all want this dreadful pandemic to be OVER… but it should RIGHTFULLY go to the elderly and to the courageous health care workers first… These women don’t seem to have any compassion. They think themselves “above” the rules. Just like the “never masker“ who delivered lumber to my husband’s job site and exposed him to Covid. (My husband was masked & gloved, but Covid is a sneaky virus). We are 74 and both have heart conditions and now both have Covid because of this arrogant never-masker. Maybe these young women and the no-masker tell themselves they’re not breaking a LAW, but what about consideration of others and compassion for your fellow man? “No man is an island…”

      How many illegals are let in this country? How many people voted 5 times. Etc, etc, etc. Let them have what they want. I just hope if they ever need life-saving help that someone else does not steal their opportunity to get it. Nobody seems to be worried about the vaccines that are improperly stored, lost or given out to “privledged” people. Just let the “entitled” have what they want. When you need something that isn’t there because someone stole it from you I wonder if YOU will feel the same.

    So they effectively wasted 2 doses by refusing to give the 2nd one. Great job on both ends. The stupid is strong. ????

    I’m 78 years old and freely willing to donate the vaccine being offered to me to them. To attempt such a deception I assume they are living in mortal fear of COVID and I am not. I do not plan to get the vaccine.

    No fraud here, just two women that wanted something they weren’t entitled to. Rules and laws are meaningless. If I want it, to hell with anyone else. I deserve it more. And if I have to cheat or deceive to obtain it, so be it. I am over 65 and at risk. I would be happy to donate my health and safety so these two can feel “safe”. I wonder what other pleasures of theirs I give up for? May they both live fulfilled and happy lives knowing that they have to cheat others to obtain what they want.

    If Kamala Harris is allowed to jump the line, why shouldn’t every other undeserving individual be allowed to muscle aside some privileged venerable senior.

Biden Admin Announces First COVID Shots For Kids Under 5 Likely By June 21

On Thursday, the Biden administration announced that children under 5 will be able to get their first COVID-19 vaccination doses as soon as June 21, if regulators authorize the shots for this age group as expected.

According to the Associated Press, White House COVID-19 coordinator Ashish Jha “said the Food and Drug Administration’s outside panel of advisers will meet on June 14-15 to evaluate the Pfizer and Moderna shots for younger kids. Shipments to doctors’ offices and pediatric care facilities would begin soon after FDA authorization, with the first shots possible the following week.”

Jha added that states can begin placing orders for the pediatric vaccines on Friday and the administration will initially have 10 million doses available.

“Our expectation is that within weeks every parent who wants their child to get vaccinated will be able to get an appointment,” Jha said. “At the end of the day we all want to move fast, but we’ve got to get it right.”

The news comes the week after Pfizer announced that three doses of their vaccine offers strong protection against COVID-19 in children under 5.  However, according to former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a third dose is unnecessary because the vaccines do not prevent infection.

“I think the decision matrix has changed around the vaccine for [ages] 6 months to 4 years old and so far as we know that the vaccine isn’t as protective at preventing infection,” Gottlieb said. “Previously, we had data showing that the childhood vaccine for 6 months to 4 years wasn’t as protective against infection as the adult vaccine.”

“That’s the reason why they pushed it out and asked for that third dose. But now, if the goal of the vaccine is to get baseline immunity in the kids to prevent really bad outcomes, and you’re really not using the vaccine as a tool to prevent infection in the first place, two doses could do that,” he added.

Kamala Harris

On Tuesday, the White House announced that Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not currently showing symptoms.

“Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests,” said Kirsten Allen, press secretary to the vice president. “She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence. She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules. She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians. The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”

Harris wrote on Twitter that she was going to continue to isolate and is showing no symptoms.

“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, and I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted,” Harris tweeted.

Harris last reportedly saw President Biden at the Easter Egg Roll on April 18 before leaving for California, which she returned from on April 25.

The vice president has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and has received two booster shots, receiving the second booster on April 1.

“Yesterday I received my second COVID-19 booster shot,” Harris tweeted on April 2. “We know that getting vaccinated is the best form of protection from this virus and boosters are critical in providing an additional level of protection. If you haven’t received your first booster—do it today.”
