A young man screams in despair in a video that has gone viral as he fears being hit by a needle to receive the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. The case happened on Wednesday (28) in Chihuahua, Mexico.
The protagonist of the video and his friend queue up for a vaccine inside a multi-sport court in a Mexican city. Through the images, which were recorded by the woman identified as Luna Chavira, it is possible to notice the tense look of the boy when he sees that it is his turn to apply.
Before this, the author of the video takes the vaccine and doesn’t even show signs of pain or anxiety. Then the health worker only comes close to the scandalous and a roar erupts in the courtroom, with dozens of people lining up.
Despite the outcry, he asks the applicator to keep trying to vaccinate her and she herself can’t resist and starts laughing out loud. Then she takes the needle and applies the immunization agent. And, as Mexico won the Olympic gold medal, court attendees celebrate the youth’s act of overcoming difficulties.
“It doesn’t hurt,” he said after passing away in fear.
According to the government of Chihuahua, the city ranks second in the number of COVID cases, just after Juárez (33,399), with a recent 21,524 confirmations in the state of the same name.
To stop the progression of the disease, this week adults between the ages of 20 and 25 began to be vaccinated.
