The first question I have, is why is everyone getting vaccinated on camera?
People are acting so strange with this virus…Do we watch “live” flu vaccinations? No. But it seems like everywhere we turn there’s another person getting vaccinated on TV.
Yesterday, a nurse fainted 10 minutes after getting vaccinated.
And now today, El Paso University Medical Center was caught in a bizarre vaccination stunt, where they injected someone with an empty needle. A local Texas TV station was the first to catch the fake injection.
This is rather inexcusable. The University Medical Center in El Paso, Texas, decided to televise COVID-19 vaccines for staff members. I am sure the leaders’ intentions were good. Showing medical workers taking the vaccine helps to increase confidence in the process and may encourage those hesitant to receive it.
However, if you watch this video of this vaccination, the syringe is clearly empty. The black plunger is fully depressed when the person administering it correctly pulls back on it. The vaccine is an intramuscular, or “IM,” injection. When you give someone an IM injection, you pull back slightly to ensure you have not mistakenly entered a blood vessel.
According to the FDA’s Emergency Use fact sheet for the Pfizer vaccine, administrators should dilute 0.3 ml of vaccine in 1.8 ml of normal saline, then withdraw 0.3 ml of the diluted vaccine to give a dose. The syringe in the video appears to be a 1-ml syringe, which means the plunger’s black bottom should be a third of the way up when the professional makes the injection, and then the professional should back up the syringe halfway to ensure the needle does not stick in a blood vessel. The health care worker in the video clearly did not do this.
💉Vaccinated or not? While watching the footage of the first 5 nurses in El Paso receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, KFOX14 noticed a discrepancy when the second nurse went to be vaccinated. The syringe used was empty.

After the video went viral, the hospital issued this statement:
“After numerous reports emerged on social media claiming one of the five nurses receiving a vaccination on Tuesday did not receive a full dose of vaccine, we want to remove any doubt raised that he was not fully vaccinated and further strengthen confidence in the vaccination process,” UMC said in a statement to KTSM. “The nurse in question today was vaccinated again. UMC has confirmed with the US Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) that re-vaccinating the nurse will not cause adverse effects. The nurse will need to return after three weeks to receive his second dose.”
Well, the nurse didn’t receive any injection, you can clearly see the plunger of the needle is all the way down.
Do these people think we’re all stupid?
I don’t know about you, but this feels very “off.”
