The case was reported to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in central Florida, which noted that the women were under 65.

The women who dress up as grandmothers in Florida, however, carried a valid card of the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine, Raúl Pino, an Orange County health official, said at a press conference.

“I don’t know how they did it the first time, but they came with gloves, glasses, everything, and they are probably 20 years old,” Pino said.

The official stressed that the number of people trying to fake their identities is probably higher than is believed.

The number of vaccinated people in Florida with a population of more than 21 million is 2.43 million. Of these, 1.13 million have received the two doses required by the vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna laboratories.

In addition to those over 65, for now only people who reside in geriatric centers and those who care for them and health personnel on the front line of the fight against covid-19 can be vaccinated.
