The race to get fully vaccinated against COVID-19 has dominated conversations recently. People are concerned with calculating the date of their next dose, finding a vaccination centre and so on. But sometimes, things can take a funny turn.
This viral video shows a man going to great lengths to get jabbed. The 15-second clip shows the man standing behind a building, next to a window. Seconds later, a person wearing gloves is seen apparently vaccinating the man. The camera pans out to show the crowd waiting in front of the building to get vaccinated.
The location and date of the video have not been discovered yet.
Since being uploaded, the clip has gone viral on social media, with over 4 lakh views. It has been shared over 5,000 times. Many social media users found the video funny, commenting on the “backdoor service” the man received. Others slammed his unsafe means of getting vaccinated.
As concern continues over the COVID-19 variants, India is racing to get its population vaccinated at the earliest. According to Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, India achieved the highest single-day record of administering coronavirus vaccines, with over 88 lakh doses administered in the last 24 hours.
