Texas Hospital Appears to Give Worker Fake Covid-19 Vaccine Shot
A Texas hospital is under fire after eagle-eyed viewers claimed the COVID vaccine healthcare workers received on TV appeared to be fake.
Camera crews were invited to the University Medical Center of El Paso to capture five of its front-line workers get the coveted coronavirus vaccine on Tuesday.
Videos on social media showing paramedic Ricardo Martinez getting the supposed shot raised concerns among skeptical viewers who noticed that the syringe was already pushed down.
“Clearly that syringe was EMPTY and the plunger was already down. Where’s the bandaid? Yeah, nice try! We are not fooled!” Facebook user Barbara Siira wrote.
“Syringe is empty, the guy didn’t push the syringe at all, bad acting,” viewer Aaron Isaac Hernandez wrote.
“Just for show. I’m definitely not taking this now,” wrote another Facebook user.
