KFOX14 – El Paso:

A mishap took place while a University of Medical Center nurse was vaccinated for COVID-19 Tuesday.
While watching the footage of the first five nurses receiving the vaccine, KFOX14 noticed a discrepancy when the second nurse went to be vaccinated.
Take a closer look at the video footage a KFOX14 photojournalist captured during the public vaccination event Tuesday. You see the nurse is being prepped for the vaccine, but the syringe appears to be empty and the plunger has already been depressed.
