Did you ever see someone injected with an empty syringe?

In this COVID panic, you may get to see that for the first time.

Did you ever see someone injected with an empty syringe?

What you are watching is a video of the alleged first vaccinations against COVID-19 at UMC (University Medical Center).  This video was widely reported at the time of publishing.  Presumably, this is intended to make the viewer be less fearful about the vaccine (according to the basic human principle of monkey see, monkey do).

If you focus on the syringe, you can clearly tell it's 100% empty.  The person "administering the vaccine" clumsily pretends to push on the plunger, which won't budge because, surprise, the plunger is already fully bottomed out.

CBS media (see archived link in previous paragraph) is calling it a "mishap".  Is it?  As far as I am aware, people administering vaccines can clearly tell when the syringe is empty, and can also easily correct that sort of error.  In my dictionary, this is not a mishap — this is deceitIt takes a special type of overconfident PR stupidity to think to yourself "Ah, we'll just do a fake vaccination for the TV cameras.  It's easier.  No one will notice."

Critical thinking question: if the product is good, why do they need to fake people taking the product?

They really must think that you and I are perfect idiots.  Or perhaps they didn't want this to happen on camera again, after it happened to Tiffany Dover:

The question you and every other critical thinker must ask is: why do fake vaccinations need to be staged?
