Two women disguised themselves as "grannies" in a failed attempt to get a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in Orange County.

Orange County health officials say two women dressed up as elderly women and went to a vaccine distribution site in an effort to get vaccinated. You can see body camera footage from the Orange County Sheriff's Office in the video layer above.

Dr. Raul Pino, the director of the Florida Department of Health in Orange County, said the two women showed up Wednesday at the Orange County Convention Center vaccine site.

He also said the women had already received their first doses, so it appears their efforts were successful the first time around. “So yesterday, we realized a couple of young ladies came dressed up as grannies to get vaccinated for the second time.

The bonnets, the gloves, the glasses, and they were probably in their 20s,” Pino said. Officials say the women were actually 44 and 34 years old. The county has been running the site and doing about 2,500 appointments a day vaccinating people 65 and over. Pino said that some fire rescue workers who were helping screen and check in the people coming for vaccines noticed something fishy and Pino said the Orange County Sheriff's Office got involved. The women were not charged, but were cited for trespassing.

Pino said they're looking into whether there is some loophole in their process that let the women get the first shot, or if they had help from someone on the inside. Pino said it is not the first time someone has tried to buck the system to get a shot.
