Was a nurse caught faking the COVID-19 vaccination for Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin’s son?!
Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Nurse Caught Faking Vaccination For Health Minister’s Son!
People are sharing this message and a TikTok video, which they claim is proof that a nurse was caught faking the COVID-19 vaccination of Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin’s son.
Truth : Nurse Did NOT Fake Vaccination For Health Minister’s Son!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS being created and circulated by antivaxxers and people who really should know better…
Here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : The Nurse Was Distracting The Boy
When the video went viral, the Malaysia Ministry of Health released a video of the nurse explaining what she did.
As an experienced nurse vaccinating children, she is aware that they may get anxious on seeing the needle, so she explained that she would hide the needle from their view.
She would then distract them by asking them to count one to ten, and wait until they are calm and not moving, before injecting them with the vaccine.
That was why she appeared to be putting the syringe under the table. But if you watch the unedited video below, you will see that it was placed there so her other hand would block the boy from seeing the needle.
Fact #2 : The Syringe Plunger Was Never Pushed
The fake news creator intentionally zoomed in to focus on the needle for two reasons :
- the blurry video made the needle look like a stream of liquid
- to avoid you noticing that the plunger was never pushed
The nurse also pointed out in her video that the white plunger is clearly visible in the unedited video, and it is impossible for any vaccine to be ejected without pushing the syringe plunger.
Here is the original unedited video. Watch from around the 0:54 mark. You can clearly see that :
- what looked like a stream of liquid in the blurry video was just the needle of the syringe
- she never pushed the plunger, until after she inserted the needle into the boy’s arm.
Fact #3 : The Syringe Was Not Repeatedly Emptied
The fake news claims that the nurse repeatedly emptied the syringe, suggesting that there was nothing in it. That’s nonsense.
The COVID-19 vaccine is injected intramuscularly. To confirm that the needle is indeed going into the muscle and not a vein, the nurse has to withdraw the plunger to see if any blood goes into the syringe.
Only after she sees that no blood is withdrawn into the syringe, does she push the plunger to inject the vaccine into the deltoid muscle.
Fact #4 : The Cameraman Was Khairy Jamaluddin Himself
The fake news creator removed the original audio in the edited video, so he/she could claim that the nurse was “caught in action by the cameraman“.
The truth is – the cameraman was the Health Minister himself, Khairy Jamaluddin.
If you watch the original video, you can hear his voice saying, “Count to ten, okay? Finish, finish, finish!”
Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccine For Kids Proven Safe + Effective
The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for 5-11 year-old children have been proven safe and effective.
It uses the same mRNA vaccine that has been successfully used in BILLIONS of adults and adolescents, just at 1/3 the dose.
In addition, more than 8 million doses of this paediatric vaccine had already been safely administered in the United States, before it was introduced in Malaysia.
Let me speak plainly – the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for kids is safe and effective. That is why I vaccinated my two younger children on the very first day the vaccination centre opened!
The only scandal here is how antivaxxers continue to put our children’s lives at risk by creating such fake news and lying about COVID-19 vaccines.
Stop believing in these fake news, and vaccinate your loved ones against COVID-19.
