This shot backfired – and how. Vaccination opponents in Greece wanted to steal a valid corona vaccination certificate. According to the “Keep Talking Greece” portal, they offered their doctors 400 euros (around 420 francs) each to inject them with a saline solution instead of a vaccine dose. The doctors accepted the money – and then administered the normal corona vaccine to the patients.
According to the Greek media, over 100,000 opponents of vaccinations and 200 to 300 doctors and nurses are said to have been involved in the fraud.
Side effects of “saline solution”
Some of those who opposed the vaccination didn’t feel so good after the spade. Despite the alleged saline solution, they got the usual vaccine side effects. Some felt weak and had pain at the puncture site. So the dizziness was finally exposed. When they went to other doctors for treatment about this, it came out that they were vaccinated with a corona vaccine.
Now the fraudsters could take legal action against the doctors and file a complaint. Because the doctors vaccinated them without consent. Then the vaccination crooks would have to incriminate themselves and admit that they wanted to cheat. A dilemma.
Strict measures and controls
In Greece, unvaccinated people are only allowed to visit public institutions with a negative test. This rule even applies to visits to authorities. Exceptions: supermarkets and pharmacies. In addition, unvaccinated workers have to present two negative tests per week.

The Greek police strictly control the measures. The government has dismissed around 8,000 law enforcement officers. Unvaccinated people without a current test face fines of 300 euros (around 315 francs). (oco)
