The COVID-19 pandemic took over the entire world since last year, but now vaccines have slowly making their rounds in order to curb the virus.
It seems some people are more desperate than others to get their hands on a COVID-19 vaccine. According to a report by ABC News, two Florida women dressed up as ‘grannies’ in order to get some COVID-19 vaccines.
The report stated that that the women wore bonnets, glasses, and gloves, hoping that they would appear older than their actual age. According to Orange County Sheriff’s Office, the women were identified as Olga Monroy-Ramirez, 44, and Martha Vivian Monroy, 34 and were then given warnings of trespassing.
Only those individuals who are older than 65 are eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccines in the state.
The two women were actually able to get the first of two vaccine shots but were denied the second time after an issue was seen with their identification cards. According to WKMG-TV, vaccinators thought the women “looked funny” and were stopped before being given the vaccine.
