Nurse Injects Vaccine Into Tissue Before Issuing 'Proof' Of Dose To Patient

Nurse Injects Vaccine Into Tissue Before Issuing 'Proof' Of Dose To Patient

A nurse has been arrested after CCTV caught her squirting a dose of the Covid-19 vaccine into a tissue before issuing 'proof' that the patient had had the dose. Here is the footage of the incident:


Police in Italy are investigating a huge anti-vax scam whereby people are paying up to €400 (£330) to get a vaccine passport without actually having the dose.

An investigation explained how people are going to the vaccination centre which is situated in Ancona, Italy, for the fake jabs.

The CCTV shows clearly that the nurse injects the Covid-19 vaccine into a piece of gauze or tissue before then placing the needle to the patient's arm.

It's not clear whether it goes into their arm or not but nothing comes out of the needle before it is disposed of.

It's believed that a plaster is then placed on the arm of the person 'getting the vaccine' before they're given a 'green pass' which shows proof that they've had the vaccine.

The MailOnline reported that a 51-year-old nurse, who runs the vaccination centre, has been arrested and four others - including a lawyer who acted as an intermediary for the scam - have been placed under house arrest.

It's believed that authorities are looking at around 50 people as part of the operation. They have been ordered not to leave the area and must present themselves to their local police station every day.

In December, an Italian dentist spoke out after he attempted to use a fake arm to get the vaccine.

Guido Russo, 57, was rumbled at the Biver Banca di Biella vaccination centre in Biella, on 2 December, and has now said that the fiasco ruined his life after a nurse spotted that the arm - which was reportedly bought on Amazon - wasn't real.

He has reportedly been suspended from the Order of Doctors recently although it was not clear if that was because of his stance on vaccines, or his attempt to get a Green Pass illegally, resulting in him being investigated for fraud.

Speaking to journalists, Russo simply said: "You ruined my life. Go Away. I'll call the police."

Filippa Bua, the nurse who foiled the man's attempt, said: "I immediately realised that something was wrong. We are professionals, but such imaginative things had never happened to me.

"When I touched the arm to feel it before the injection, I realised it was rubber foam."
