Canadian Man Pummels Nurse who Vaccinated his Wife

Quebec authorities are searching for a man they say beat up a nurse because she vaccinated his wife.

The incident occurred earlier this week at a pharmacy in Sherbrooke, which is about 90 miles east of Montreal, according to police spokesman Martin Carrier. When the unidentified man learned a nurse at the pharmacy had administered a dose of vaccine to his wife, he blew his top and punched her “several times,” Carrier says. The nurse was treated at a local hospital for facial injuries and a possible concussion.

“We obviously condemn this gesture, which we deem unacceptable to the pharmacy teams who have been providing essential services since the start of the pandemic,” reads a statement released by the Jean Coutu Group, owner of the pharmacy.

Do you think the wife didn’t tell the husband because she was ashamed of getting vaccinated? Do you keep your vaccination status from anyone?
