Nurse loses job after video reveals she stole Covid vaccine

A nurse in Michoacán has been dismissed after a video revealed she had stolen Covid vaccine for her family.

The video, which showed an injection being given in a private home, was followed by a Messenger conversation in which the recipient of the vaccine, Ariz Sánchez, explained that her aunt, who worked in the health sector in Morelia, had taken it from her workplace.

The person with whom she was corresponding replied by pointing out it was a crime to which Sánchez replied, “Well yes, but everyone who works there takes [vaccine doses] for their families.”

Sánchez mentioned another friend was going to receive her second dose because her family worked in healthcare.

The state Ministry of Health issued a statement on Wednesday announcing that the nurse had been terminated. “We don’t tolerate actions such as this that put people’s health at risk and hurt the vaccination process.”
