A video of a man with needle phobia passing out as he gets his first dose of Covid vaccine has gone viral.

In the video, Maguila Júnior can be seen going super anxious as the nurse tries to administer Covid vaccine.

Knowing about his needle phobia, Maguila's partner records the incident.

As the syringe approaches him, Maguila gets more nervous and can be seen taking deep breaths to calm himself.

However, as he gets the shot, he faints and falls on the ground leaving everyone shocked.

Medical staff swiftly attended to him and checked his vitals and he was later given a bottle of water.

The video was shared by Maguila himself and had garnered thousands of views.

Some find the video funny, while few others supported him by saying that such panic attacks and phobia are real.
