The number of elderly people who received a false application of the vaccine against covid-19 in the South American country.
Family members of several elderly people, who accompanied them at the time of vaccination and who recorded the moment through the cell phone camera, verified, through video images, that the nurses inserted the needle in the arm, but did not inject the antidote.
In the Niterói area, in Rio de Janeiro, three cases of false immunization were reported, according to the G1 news portal, also reporting that one of the nurses in question was removed, and that the correct vaccination was subsequently guaranteed by another health professional.
However, similar situations are repeated throughout Brazil, as occurred with elderly people in the states of Alagoas, Goiás or São Paulo, where video images of false immunizations were quickly disseminated on the internet.
Cases like these, although punctual, have already been included in the list of possible frauds investigated by the National Consumer Secretariat (Senacon), with the support of the Federal Public Ministry of Brazil.
“I was filming and I realized at the time that she (nurse) had not applied, because the vaccine was all in the syringe. Then I questioned and she admitted that she hadn’t injected. He said it was a mistake and vaccinated again, ”Luciana, daughter of Floramy de Oliveira Jordão, 88, told the press that she was on the priority list to receive the immunization against covid-19.
In view of what happened, in some cities in Brazil, health professionals were forced to show the full vaccine bottle, load the plunger in front of the elderly person and show the empty syringe after application.
