- How badly do some people want COVID vaccines? Well, authorities in Orlando say two women dressed up as grandmothers to get them. And this is the sheriff's body-cam video to prove it. They say the women, one in her 40s, the other in her 30s, tried to get the vaccines Wednesday at the Orange County Convention Center. Apparently this wasn't their first time.

--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.

- People giving the vaccine caught on to the scam when the women's birthdays on their IDs did not match their registrations. They were issued warnings for trespassing.
