By Benjamin Flowers: The Ministry of Health and Wellness today said that it was aware that there are fake COVID-19 vaccination cards in circulation and that authorities have been contacted on the matter.
The ministry said that it strongly condemns this action and the matter has been referred to the police department. The MOHW also reminded the public that it is an offense to produce false vaccination cards.
The ministry reminds the public and every public vaccinator of the Public Health Act Chapter 40, Revised Edition 2000, 162 (2) which states, “Every person who wilfully signs a false certificate or return under this Part is guilty of an offense and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months,”’ the ministry added.
The public is asked to assist in the fight against these fake vaccination cards by reporting any suspicious COVID-19 vaccination card or document to the nearest public health clinic or the ministry.
