Footage of a huge protest has been viewed thousands of times on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter alongside a claim the demonstration forced the Romanian government to close all vaccination centres. The claim is false. The footage actually shows an anti-corruption rally in Romania in 2017. The Romanian government closed some of its Covid-19 vaccination centres in September 2021 — but hundreds remain open as of September 23, 2021, officials told AFP.
