[Ed. – There’s a name for this: ‘vaccine tourism.’]
A popular Mexican TV host is under fire after traveling to Florida just to get the coveted COVID-19 vaccine, which most Americans have not received.
Juan José Origel, who’s famous for hosting Mexican daytime shows such as “Ventaneando” (“Looking Out the Window”), “Hoy” (“Today”) and “La Oreja” (“The Ear”), posted a photo on Twitter Saturday showing him getting a shot in his right arm as he’s sitting inside a car.
“Already vaccinated!! Thanks #usa what a shame my country couldn’t grant me that security!!!” Origel wrote in Spanish.
It’s unclear how he made the vaccine appointment.
Many on social media blasted him for being insensitive for bragging about the shot.
“I am a mother, I have two kids, I pay taxes, I’ve been working during the entire pandemic and it turns out tourists get the shot? What a shame!” wrote one Twitter user.
