Fake Grannies Want Vaccine – level 3

24-02-2021 07:00

Two women dressed up to make themselves appear as older adults to get coronavirus vaccinations.

The women, aged 34 and 44, disguised themselves with hats, gloves, and glasses and they came to the vaccination site in Florida, US. According to officials, the women altered their birth years on their vaccination registrations to bypass the state system that prioritizes people aged 65 and older. The staff noticed the discrepancy with their birthdays listed on their driver’s licenses and a police officer issued trespass warnings against them.

Apparently, the women had gotten the first shot; however, it was unclear where.

Apparently, there have been more cases of people trying to trick health workers into getting their vaccinations, including a man who had the same name as his elderly father.

Difficult words: bypass (to avoid something), discrepancy (a difference between two things that should be similar), trespass warning (a warning that a person isn’t allowed to be somewhere).
