Waxxinate or Waxinate or Waxxxinate (variant spelling of “vaccinate")

"Waxinate” or “waxxinate” or waxxxinate” are variant spellings of “vaccinate,” sometimes for jocular effect and sometimes to get around computer algorithms. The spellings became popular in 2020 with the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, but were used earlier.

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