Fake COVID-19 Vaccination Record Cards Pose Health Risks

March 15, 2021

The Department of Health and Human Services, the Office of Inspector General, and the FBI Criminal Investigative Division, in coordination with the FBI’s Office of Private Sector, prepared a Liaison Information Report to inform health care providers and public health entities about several reported incidents involving fake COVID-19 vaccination records. The report recommends that vaccine administrators do not share blank vaccine cards with individuals who have not received a vaccine, and that health care professionals discourage individuals from sharing photos or copies of vaccine cards, particularly on social media. The report stresses the importance of continuing to follow CDC guidance regarding social distancing and the use of personal protective equipment.
