Claim:

A man was forcibly vaccinated against COVID-19 in a Dallas hospital.

Answer:

False, there is no vaccine for COVID-19.

FURTHER INFORMATION

A voice-over claims that a hospital in Texas is forcibly vaccinating patients, against their will, for COVID-19. A video is then shown, self-taken, supposedly of a man in a hospital in Dallas, Texas, talking to a gathered set of people who are dressed like medical staff. The man gets more agitated as he refuses the treatment he is being offered and claims he does not have Covid-19.

The supposed medical staff listen patiently to the man and try to calm him down, explaining that it has been deemed that he cannot make rational decisions about his own health, in the state that he is in. At no point is the world β€˜vaccine’ mentioned.

The claim that US citizens, or Texas citizens, are being forcibly vaccinated against COVID-19 is false. There is no vaccine for COVID-19, and it is unclear from the video what treatment the medical staff were trying to administer, and what condition the patient was in.

Origins of Claim

FULL TEXT OF CLAIM

“I’ve just been sent this very disturbing video of a man in Parkland Memorial in Dallas who was brought to the hospital of his own consent, by an ambulance. He felt ill, he thought he had coronavirus so they took him to the hospital, and in the video here you’ll see there’s a team of doctors and they’re trying to negotiate with him to stick a vaccine in his arm. He clearly does not want the vaccine.”
