After travelling to Florida, a famous Mexican TV host is under fire just to get the coveted COVID-19 vaccine, which has not been obtained by most Americans.
“A photo was posted on Twitter Saturday by Juan José Origel, who is famous for hosting Mexican daytime shows such as “Ventaneando” (“Looking Out the Window”), “Hoy” (“Today”) and “La Oreja” (“The Ear”), showing him having a shot in his right arm as he sits inside a car.
“Vaccinated already!! Thanks to #usa, what a pity my country couldn’t give me that protection!!! “In Spanish, Origel wrote.
Why he made the appointment for the vaccine is unknown. Many blasted him on social media for being rude about boasting about the shot.
“I’m a mother, I have two children, I pay taxes, I worked through the whole pandemic, and it turns out that tourists get a shot? What a disgrace!” one Twitter user wrote.
According to Al Dia (Up To Date) newspaper in Dallas, Texas, Origel travelled to Miami, Florida, to get the shot because the introduction of the COVID-19 vaccine was too sluggish in Mexico.
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Monday that Russia will supply Mexico with 24 million doses of its Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine over the next two months.
López Obrador, who was widely criticised for not following the country’s stricter COVID-19 laws, revealed that he tested positive for the bug with mild symptoms on Sunday. Foreigners travelling for vaccination vaccinations to the United States is nothing new.
Canadians are also attempting to fly to the United States and go home the same day to get their weapons jabbed. The Wall Street Journal confirmed that some Argentines have made the hours-long journey to get a shot in Florida.
Yanina Latorre, the Argentine TV personality, recently posted on Instagram that while on vacation in South Florida, her elderly mother received the COVID-19 vaccine.
