From the social media complaints, the 42-year-old nurse who mis-applied the doses was identified, although when consulted she was not able to explain the reason for not having properly applied the injection. Another case occurred in the city of Niteroi, where a professional pretended to apply the dose to a 90-year-old and the fact was recorded by the accompanying relatives. Police accused the nurse of embezzlement.» Analysis of the video makes it clear that she was aware that she was not applying the vaccine, until she was alerted and questioned by the family and responded ironically,» Commissioner Luiz Henrique Pereira explained to Brazilian media.
