You do not get vaccinated without an appointment in Andalusia, it is a WhatsApp hoax that is causing serious problems
A hoax is spreading at high speed through WhatsApp and has caused the collapse of a vaccination center.
Not all hoaxes have the objective of causing a profit for those who spread them, a political purpose or infecting with malware, sometimes it is even worse and it only seeks to cause chaos or do as much damage as possible, as with the one that is being suffered in some vaccination centers in Andalusia.
A hoax is being shared massively through WhatsApp. In it It is reported that in some centers people over 80 years of age are vaccinated even if they do not have a previous appointment. According to the false information, just by showing the ID they vaccinate the elderly. Unfortunately, many are being victims of this lie.
The Junta de Andalucía itself has been obliged to have to deny the hoax of WhatsApp and has published a notice on Twitter, at the same time that different media are echoing to try to inform and avoid the collapse that is experienced in some vaccination centers.
As reported in The newspaper, up to 4,000 people have shown up in a Seville center deceived by this WhatsApp message. The sports center of Los Bermejales was mentioned in the hoax and has been collapsed due to an unusual situation, where a large number of people were also over 80 years of age who were without a safety distance.
It is not the first hoax that occurs in reference to vaccination against the coronavirus, a few days ago there was one just in reverse, “In this case, it warned against going to a vaccination point because the planned doses had run out. The result is that fewer people came to get vaccinated that day“reports El Diario.
The Police are investigating who is behind these WhatsApp message chains whose main objective is to damage the vaccination campaign and that can endanger a large number of people, as has happened today in Seville with the thousands of elderly people who have deceived themselves to get vaccinated.
