One nurse said the 57-year-old man was polite and left the vaccination center after a failed attempt.
Milan, Italy — Italian dentists may be held criminally liable after attempting to get the coronavirus vaccine with a fake silicone arm.
A nurse in Philippa Bua, a city in the north of Biella, said that when a man shot a fake limb on Thursday, he could immediately say something was wrong.
“When I removed the arm cover, I felt my skin was cold, sticky and too light in color,” Bua told the Italian newspaper Corriere della Serra.
She initially said she thought the 57-year-old man was an amputee and accidentally provided the wrong arm. She lifted his shirt and looked at Silicon’s arm.
“I quickly realized that men were trying to avoid vaccination with silicone prostheses. He wanted me to inject the drug unnoticed,” Bua said.
The nurse admitted that the man didn’t want the vaccine, but said he would get the “super” health pass needed to enter Italian restaurants, cinemas, theaters and other places from Monday.
He had already been suspended because Italy refused to get the vaccinations he requested from medical personnel.
The nurse said the man was polite and left the vaccination center after a failed attempt.
“We stopped and reflected. We found that this was not just a hyperrealistic situation, but a real fraudulent attempt,” Bua said. She and others at the vaccination site handed over the documents to her boss so that she could report the case given to the prosecutor.
Italy’s vaccination rate is relatively high at 85% of the currently eligible population over the age of 12, but people aged 30-59 have proven to be most resistant to vaccination, with nearly 3.5 million people. Has not received the first vaccination yet.
