TLDR; My malicious compliance results in anti-vax woman getting fully vaccinated. The tears were delicious.
So I am a doctor in NZ, currently working in Immunology.
Our country recently (like, today) introduced a policy where you need to show a vaccine pass to be able to access hospitality or retail stores. To get this vaccine pass, you either need to be fully vaccinated or have a legitimate medical exemption.
As I just started working in Immunology, I have a weekly allergy clinic. I had a woman referred into me, who we shall call Karen, who had reportedly had a reaction to the first vaccine dose. We take that very seriously, and there was a strong possibility that she could receive an exemption from the second dose or subsequent booster shots, depending on the nature of the reaction.
However it became clear within the first few minutes of the consult that this woman had not had a serious reaction to the vaccine. She was not telling me any of the symptoms she experienced, and just kept referring to the "reaction". Even direct questioning was getting nowhere. However, after a frustrating 10 minutes, I was able to rule out a severe allergic reaction, or a possible cardiac event (the two major concerns for the Pfizer vaccine).
During the course of the consult, it became obvious that Karen was more interested in grandstanding about the vaccine than in actually receiving medical care. She accidentally let slip that getting a vaccine exemption would benefit her "politically", whatever that meant. She also let slip that she was against vaccines in general, and was trying to prove a point.
I offered her an alternative vaccine, the AstraZeneca, which she vehemently refused due to risk of blood clots.
So, I explained what the standard procedure is to confirm a serious allergy. It's called a challenge. Basically we give the patient the thing they might be allergic to. If they react, we have all of the necessary care with experts on severe allergy right there (this is in a major hospital), and if they don't have a reaction we know you aren't allergic. I explained it by saying "We give you the shot, and see what happens. If you have a reaction, I'll happily write you an exemption for the booster".
She agreed to this, signed the consent form after I went through it in detail. I gave her the vaccine, and she promptly had a "seizure". I put that in quotation marks, because it was the least convincing seizure I have ever seen. I've seen drug addicts trying to score benzos in the ED have more convincing seizures. I'm not even willing to call it a pseudoseizure, it was that terrible. She literally lay down (didn't fall, she actually lay down slowly on the ground) and started flopping like a fish while periodically looking at us to make sure we were watching. I've never seen anything like it. Her vitals signs were all completely normal, blood work was completely normal, everything was fine.
After she had "recovered" (read: got tired and gave up), my boss (who had taken over at this point because of how bizarre it was) explained to her that she did not have a reaction to the vaccine, was kind enough to call it a pseudozeizure, which is essentially a seizure like event cause by a psychological trigger rather than physical that to the patient feels like a real seizure but is not typically dangerous.
He informed her she would not be receiving an exemption. That resulted in much yelling and shouting, until I calmly informed her that she did not need an exemption as she was now fully vaccinated. She received the first dose prior to being sent to our clinic, and we gave her the full second dose during the challenge so she was covered. The look on her face was absolute gold.
She then proceeded to declare that she had not consented to being vaccinated (she had, in writing), and that she refused to accept that she was vaccinated (she was) and that we were lying to prevent her from claiming to be unvaccinated (we weren't). She then stormed out of the clinic when I gave her a "I'm fully vaccinated" sticker which we normally give out after a second dose. I kinda got in a tiny bit of trouble for that bit, but it was soooo worth it.
It was an entertaining afternoon.
EDIT: Wow, thanks for the awards, and thanks for the platinum
EDIT 2: Seeing as so many people keep commenting on it, yes she was fully consented for the procedure. I had explained to her on at least 3 occasions that she would be getting an actual dose of the vaccine, I wrote the name of the vaccine, both the generic name and the brand name, on the top of the consent form infront of her, went through the full consent process, witnessed by a nurse, which she signed, and even showed her the label of the vial I drew the injection from. It's an entire process to give an allergen challenge, and I followed it to the letter. Maybe she thought it didn't count because it was a medical test, I don't know, all I know is she knew she was getting it, she knew why she was getting it, and was aware of what was in the syringe I was injecting her with, but didn't seem to understand that this meant she was now vaccinated
I wouldn't mess with an allergy challenge. It's a serious procedure that I take deadly seriously. I'm aware that I am administering a potentially deadly substance to someone. As much as I joke around on Reddit, I'm a doctor and I take my job very seriously.
Twelve days ago, the Timberwolves defeated the Grizzlies by a margin of 43 points, the largest differential of the NBA season up to that point. Today, the Grizzlies paid it forward and defeated the Thunder by a margin of 73, the largest point differential of the NBA season up to this point -- and the largest point differential of any NBA game ever.
Wouldn’t it be like wanting to play a game of poker with someone who’s never played before. Sexually transmitted disease isn’t as big an issue as it used to be so it can’t be that. Is it people who are bad in bed and hide their insecurities by being with less experienced people who can’t tell? I just don’t get it
