A video that appears to show a failed vaccination attempt has been viewed tens of thousands of times on Facebook, Twitter and Weibo. The clip was shared alongside a claim that it was filmed in India as Covid-19 cases surged. But the video has been shared in a misleading context: it was filmed in Mexico and shows a vaccination error. The man in the video has since received a Covid-19 vaccine, according to the government.
