Olga Monroy-Ramirez, 44, and Martha Vivian Monroy, 34, thought they were slick when they dressed up as grannies to try to cut the line to get their COVID-19 vaccine early. Of course, they got caught.
Per People, the Florida women had on bonnets, gloves, and glasses to pass as older.
According to Dr. Raul Pino, the director of the Florida Department of Health in Orange County, “We haven’t had any lack of willing arms to get vaccinated. We also have people faking to be old to be vaccinated. Yesterday, we realized a couple of young ladies came dressed up as ‘grannies’ to get vaccinated for the second time.”
The keywords being “the second time,” as they both already had their first dose of the vaccine. They also had valid vaccination cards.
After workers spotted issues with the women’s IDs, authorities were alerted. The women basically got a slap on the wrist for the incident too.
People adds, “Deputies on scene were asked by Department of Health personnel to issue trespass warnings against the women, according to the sheriff’s office. No other law enforcement action was taken.”
