Fake Grannies Want Vaccine – level 1

24-02-2021 07:00

Two women in Florida, US, want to get the coronavirus vaccine. The women are too young. They are 34 and 44 years old. Only people older than 65 get the vaccine in the US.

The women have an idea. They wear special clothes. They wear hats, gloves, and glasses. They look like grannies.

They come to a vaccination site. They have vaccination documents. They show their driver’s licenses, too. A worker sees that the birth dates are different. It is clear that the women change their birth dates in their vaccination documents.

A police officer comes. The women must leave. They must not come back.

The women already get the first vaccine in the past. Nobody knows where they get it.

Difficult words: vaccine (a medicine that stops you from getting sick from a sickness), vaccination site (a special place where health workers vaccinate people), driver’s license (a document which says that a person can drive).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
