Unbelievable, but it is a fact. An 81-year-old resident of Thessaloniki snatched the Pfizer vaccine, she claims, “for a long memory.”
The old lady is expected to be taken to the Thessaloniki prosecutor’s office, as a case has been brought against her over the theft of the Pfizer vaccine from the vaccination center.
Course of events
It all started yesterday, 06/29 at 10:40 am, when doctors and nurses discovered the six-dose vial of Pfizer vaccine was missing. The director of the vaccination center immediately reported the incident to the police and an investigation began. From the first moment, it focused on people who entered a specific area for vaccination, including an elderly visitor.
According to what was revealed, when the police asked her if she knew anything about the stolen vaccine, the 81-year-old woman told them that she “took it” because she wanted to have “a souvenir from the whole procedure at the vaccination center.”
She didn’t know that there were 6 more doses of the vaccine in the package she put in her pocket.
Granny returned the stolen goods, but she was nevertheless arrested and opened a criminal case against her…
