A nurse who made a sick TikTok video in which she jokes she got her Covid vaccine and then shows off a Holocaust-style tattoo on her arm has been fired.

Jessica Renzi worked as a surgical technician for Wellstar Health who said it is "strongly against anti-Semitism" in a statement after she was fired.

In the clip, the giggling nurse tells viewers: "I decided to do my part and get the, you know [mimes getting an injection].

"So I wanted to show you, you know since we're going down the vaccine passport route, I thought it would be so much easier so I just went ahead and got the number tattooed on me instead.

"Give me a sec, I'll flip it around and you can see it."

The nurse then holds out her arm and shows the number 7734209 written on it in the same style used by the Nazis in concentration camps where millions of Jewish people were murdered.

"Did you get it? isn't that such a great idea?" she says, claiming the number is a vaccine lot number.

The video went viral on TikTok and made it onto Twitter and, not long after, Wellstar Health said the nurse was no longer an employee.

Someone else commented: "Why people still think this sort of stuff is still some great idea is beyond me."
