Viral Immune Boy Injected During Vaccination, Cisimeut Covid-19 Task Force: Not Baduy Tribe!

Suara.com – Social media is excited with the viral video of an elementary school student who seems unable to get an injection, said to be immune to sharp objects.

The viral video of an invulnerable boy being injected uploaded by the @alfajri221810 account said the incident happened to a child of the Outer Baduy tribe when he received a Covid-19 vaccination.

In the 27-second video, it appears that a child wearing an elementary school uniform is about to receive an injection. However, officers were unable to inject a needle into his arm, despite several attempts.

“Banten Provincial Health Office has difficulty in injecting vaccines to children from the Baduy tribe outside because many children are provided with immune knowledge by their parents,” wrote the account, Sunday (6/3/2022).
