Social media users have been left scratching their heads after discovering a vaccine facility in the Philippines played zombie film World War Z while people were waiting for their jab.

For those that don't know, the 2013 film is about a former United Nations employee (Brad Pitt) travelling the world in a race against time to stop a zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatens to destroy humanity.

Bit of a weird choice considering the real-life pandemic the world is still going through.

A woman took to Twitter and posted a pic of inside the vaccine centre.


She wrote: "My sister's friend is in the queue to get vaccinated in cavite and they set it up so that they can watch a movie while they wait. bit of a questionable film choice..."

It appears the picture was taken in the Bataan People's Centre in Balanga rather than Cavite.

The post went viral, racking up 189,000 likes, and people were loving it.

One wrote: "This is a perfect movie. A disease that turns people to zombie.

"If you don't wanna be zombie. Get your vaccine."

A second said: "Maybe it was meant to be an instructional video?"

While a third added: "Like the movie that they choose. It convinces to get vaccine. Lol."

Thankfully an increasing number of people are getting jabbed, even a man who had only just heard about the pandemic due to living an isolated life in a cave jumped at the chance to get the vaccine.

Panta Petrovic, 70, lives in a cave near Pirot in southern Serbia and didn't know about the pandemic until he made one of his rare visits to town.

After seeing the havoc coronavirus was causing, Panta knew he was going to get jabbed up as soon as he could.

Speaking to AFP, he explained: "It [the virus] does not pick. It will come here, to my cave, too."

He claimed he 'doesn't understand the fuss' those who are choosing not to have the vaccine make.

He added: "I want to get all three doses, including the extra one.

"I urge every citizen to get vaccinated, every single one of them."
