Body cam footage released by po-po show the women in their disguises.
Apparently the women were successful the first time because this was to be their second vaccine.
"we haven't had any lack of willing arms to get vaccinated. Interesting. So, we also have people faking to be vaccinated. So yesterday we realized a couple of young ladies came dressed up as grannies —
— to get vaccinated for the second time. So I don't know how they escaped the first time, but they came vaccinated, the bonnets, the gloves, the glasses, the whole thing. And they probably were in their twenties. So it's a lot of things happening."
Turns out the women were actually 44 and 34.
“…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. He said another man who was not 65 showed up trying to use his elderly father’s ID."
He says they've stepped up security at the convention center, including adding more cameras, to make sure this doesn't happen again.”
Here’s the body cam footage of the attempt by the two ladies.
