- 2 Florida Crackeretts Pose As “Grannies” to get a 2nd COVID-19 Vaccine
- Alas, their plot was Foiled
Two Florida Crackeretts disguised themselves as elderly grandmothers in an unsuccessful attempt to get their second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Dr. Raul Pino, the director of the Florida Department of Health in Orange County, said that the women were caught dressing up as “Grannies” with: “the bonnets, the gloves, the glasses, the whole thing”, at the vaccination site. Pino said he was not sure how the Fake Grannies had managed to get their first doses.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office stated that the Crackerett’s ages are 34 and 44. The Gunshine State is currently prioritizing vaccinations for adults 65 and older, health care personnel and long-term care facility residents and staff.
How did the Faux Crackerette Grannies get caught? The dates of birth on their driver’s licenses did not match those they had used to register for the vaccines, though their names did. Health department personnel asked the deputies to issue trespass warnings.

When asked whether there have been other cases of people misrepresenting themselves to try to get vaccinated, Pino said there had been a few, including one man who shared the same name as his elderly father. “As we are engaged in this process of trying to move people quickly, some people could squeeze in, so it’s probably higher than we suspect,” Pino said of the exact number.
And, noting that vaccines are “the hottest commodity,” Pino said officials have increased security around the site to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.
