Unvaccinated Americans are often referred to as a cult-like faction stubbornly resisting science, such as it is, however, the hesitation seen from these people is more than equaled by the zealotry on display by some of those who swear by the COVID-29 vaccine.

The latest example of this almost religious devotion to getting jabbed was seen in New York City, where a Long Island woman, Laura Russo, was arrested for illegally injecting a 17-year-old boy with a COVID-19 vaccine at her home, unbeknownst to the teen’s parents, according to the New York Post.

Russo, 54, is not a doctor or authorized to administer vaccines, and was arrested for allegedly injecting the teen at her home on New Year’s Eve, according to Nassau County police.

After getting jabbed, the teen informed his mother, who reportedly alerted police.

Russo was charged with unauthorized practice of a profession and released on a desk appearance ticket, the Post noted.

Just last month, amidst the national frenzy over mandatory vaccinations facilitated by President Biden, a California mother alleged a Los Angeles area school bribed her son with pizza in exchange for getting jabbed.

Maribel Duarte said her 13-year-old son came home from Barack Obama Global Prep Academy with a vaccine card and told her he was coaxed into getting the shot in exchange for pizza and that the person who administered it told him not to say anything.

“The lady that gave him the shot and signed the paper told my son, ‘Please don’t say anything. I don’t want to get in trouble.’” Duarte told NBC Los Angeles, adding, “It hurt to know he got a shot without my permission, without knowing and without signing any papers for him to get the shot.”

There was also a report in October of a 16-year-old boy in New Orleans getting  vaccinated against COVID-19 by turning in a consent form without a parent’s signature.

 Jennifer Ravain said her received the shot at a mobile vaccination event at East Jefferson High School, where he attends.

Lafayette-based attorney Shelly Maturin, who represents the family, called the situation a “nightmare,” said it “should shock the conscience of all citizens of Louisiana,” and vowed in a written statement that “every legal avenue will be pursued to make sure that justice is served,” Fox 19 reported.

“The egregious and reckless actions of Ochsner and East Jefferson High School went well beyond any legal or moral bounds and, at a minimum, constitute a battery upon the minor child,” she added. “Hopefully, this type of reckless behavior will stop immediately, and no other parents or children will have to go through this nightmare.”

Ochsner Health’s chief medical officer Dr. Robert Hart offered an apology over the incident, not that the effects can be reversed.

“We are in communication with the parent who brought this to our attention. We offer our sincere regret and apology for any distress this has caused,” Hart said.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story out of New York City from Twitter:
