Waccinate (variant spelling of “vaccinate")

"Waccinate” is a variant spelling of “vaccinate,” sometimes for jocular effect and sometimes to get around computer algorithms. The spelling became popular in 2020 with the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, but was used earlier.

“Waccine” (wack + vaccine), “waccination,” “waxxine,” “waxinate" or “waxxinate” or “waxxxinate,” and “waxination" or “waxxination” are similar terms.
