She is accused of using false documents to convince doctors that she was a nurse so that she could get access to a COVID-19 jab before millions of elderly and sick people who the government aims to vaccinate first.
Local news outlet Infobae reports that they have seen records that show Antonella, who is a former winner of the popular reality TV show Big Brother, was vaccinated on the basis that she is a ‘health worker’.
However, there is allegedly no evidence to show that the model had ever worked in healthcare and her last registered job was as a store assistant.
Currently, the Buenos Aires province is only offering vaccines to citizens over the age of 70, over 60s with health issues and health worker and teachers.
Official sources, who were not identified, told local news outlets that the young woman had used false documents that stated she worked at a health centre in the north of Merlo.
The young model, who is currently studying at the University of La Matanza, has over 15.2 K followers on Instagram.
She has not yet publicly responded to the allegations.
The incident comes on the back of several ‘VIP Vaccination’ scandals in Argentina.
