Police mistake COVID-19 vaccine queue for illegal rave

On January 15, a large group of people waiting to receive their vaccines were mistaken for an underground party in the UK. The group was lined up outside the Essex Freemasons’ Saxon Hall in Southend, which led a confused pedestrian to alert the police of suspicious rave-like activity. The UK has had their fair share of illegal raves since the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic, and apparently left some Brits slightly trigger happy.

When the police arrived on the scene, not a single techno tune nor dubstep banger was present, only innocent health-concerned citizens. Saxon Hall chairman Dennis Baum spoke to newspaper The Echo stating:

“It was really funny when the police arrived as they had been notified that there was a ‘rave’ taking place at Saxon Hall—only to find 80 and 90 year-olds on wheelchairs, zimmer frames, and walking sticks, patiently queueing for their vaccinations. Grumpy old men and grumpy old women were in abundance. Nevertheless, as a balancing act many more very appreciative people couldn’t have been more grateful to receive the vaccine and to Saxon Hall and the Freemasons for facilitating it.”

We all suffer from COVID-19 fatigue, but it's important to keep calm and to not get too paranoid while the world is slowly working towards the end. Even when it turns out hilarious...
