Orlando, Fla. — Two women will not face charges after pretending to be elderly to get the coronavirus vaccine in Orange County.
Dr. Raul Pino with the Florida Department of Health in Orange County said the pair was busted when they tried to get their second shot on Wednesday at the Orange County Convention Center.
Dr. Pino said he isn’t sure how the two young women were able to get their first doses, but when they showed up to the site they presented valid vaccination cards.
The sheriff’s office was called when officials realized their birthdays did not match but their names did match the vaccine registration.
On Friday, the sheriff’s office released body-camera video of the incident.
“You’re lucky you’re not getting arrested right now,” a deputy can be heard saying in the video.
The women, identified as 44-year-old Olga Monroy-Ramirez and 34-year-old Martha Vivian Monroy were trespassed from the convention center.
There will be an investigation to see if the women actually received their first vaccination shots.
