Earlier this week, 90-year-old Margaret Keenan became the the first person to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, as the UK’s mass vaccination efforts got underway.

According to former NHS worker Louise Hampton though, Margaret isn’t a real NHS patient, but rather an actress being used to convince us all that the vaccine is safe. Of course!

Louise, who quit her job with 111 service provider Care UK to oppose Covid-19 measures, said during a Facebook Live video:
I wanted to speak a little bit about Margaret, she’s 90 years old, allegedly, she seemed very happy.
I do wonder, was she an actress? Did she volunteer herself, did somebody approach her? I would like to see her family on the news or whoever looks after her.
The anti-vaxxer also said in the video that V-Day was a ‘massive marketing campaign’ and captioned a report about the start of the immunisation programme with the message: ‘Maggie’s jab is merely a MARKETING PLOY!’
Louise’s Facebook page is filled with ‘false information’ warnings but her video about Maggie remains up, with over a thousand comments and shares.
After receiving the vaccine at University Hospital Coventry, Margaret had said:
My advice to anyone offered the vaccine is to take it. If I can have it at 90, then you can have it too.
37-year-old Louise resigned from Care UK earlier this year after putting out a video describing an award for her work during the pandemic as “a certificate of bollocks”, and claiming she had barely received any calls on the 111 lines.
Since then, she’s seen been joining anti-lockdown protests around the country and touring Covid-19 testing sites without wearing PPE in an effort to show they are empty.
Her claims about the 111 service receiving barely any calls have been disputed by her former employer, who says there’s been a 400% peak in calls.
Louise says friends and family have stopped speaking to her because of her views, but has vowed to keep campaigning. What I don’t get is that if she’s going to insist that 90-year-old Maggie is an actress, then what about the second person to get the vaccine – 81-year-old William Shakespeare? Is he an actor too? What about the third, fourth and fifth person?
Fair play to Louise and others for asking questions, as we always should, but you can’t just make suggestions like Margaret Keenan being an actress without really thinking through whether it makes sense first. There are legitimate concerns surrounding the vaccine after all, such as the speediness with which is it was developed. I mean can we get proof that Louise isn’t an actress herself designed to make ex-call centre workers look like dumbasses?
Anyway, this isn’t the first coronavirus vaccine conspiracy theory we’ve heard about and it certainly won’t be the last. We’re in for an interesting 2021, that’s for sure. Hold onto your butts!
