Willing Victims Flock to Count Dracula’s Castle to Get Their Experimental COVID-19 Vaccine

Romanian government officials are desperate to convince people to take the experimental COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine as Romania, with a population of 19 million people, has one of the highest rates of vaccine hesitancy in Europe. They are using Bran Castle, widely believed to be the inspiration for Dracula’s castle in Bram Stoker’s classic novel, to lure people in to get the injection at the newly-opened COVID-19 vaccination site. Health workers with blood-soaked vampire fangs on their scrubs gave out Pfizer jabs to visitors, who can turn up without an appointment. Bran Castle, nestled in the Carpathian mountains, is associated with the 15th-century Romanian prince Vlad Tepes, known as ‘the Impaler’, although he never stayed there.

  • Bran Castle, widely believed to have been the inspiration for Dracula’s castle in the classic novel, has opened as a vaccination site
  • As part of an immunisation drive, visitors can get a jab without an appointment from health workers in scrubs bearing bloody vampire fangs 
  • Those who get the jab are handed a certificate hailing their ‘boldness and responsibility’ and entitled to a free tour of the ‘torture chamber’
  • Officials hope such drives will help counter vaccine hesitancy in Romania 

Willing victims are flocking to get puncture wounds at Romania’s Bran Castle as the site – widely believed to be the inspiration for Count Dracula’s lair – opens as a vaccination centre.

A poster showed vampire fangs replaced with syringes during a coronavirus vaccination drive at the castle this weekend.

Health workers with blood-soaked vampire fangs on their scrubs gave out Pfizer jabs to visitors, who can turn up without an appointment every weekend in May.

‘I came to visit the castle with my family and when I saw the poster I gathered up my courage and agreed to get the injection, 39-year-old engineer Liviu Necula said.

Those who get the jab are handed a certificate hailing their ‘boldness and responsibility’ and promising they will be welcome at the castle ‘for the coming 100 years’ – as well as offered a free tour of its ‘torture chamber’.
