Share post:

A New Jersey woman was charged Tuesday with offering a false instrument, criminal possession of a forged instrument and conspiracy after she was accused of selling about 250 counterfeit vaccination cards.

The woman was charged along with her alleged co-conspirator, who was also charged with offering a false instrument and conspiracy.

According to prosecutors, the woman, who goes by AntiVaxMomma on Instagram, sold several hundred fake COVID-19 vaccination cards at $200 each to various individuals, including people working in hospitals and nursing homes.

Thirteen other alleged card buyers have also been charged, including a man accused of paying for registration in the COVID-19 vaccination database. With the growing demands across sectors for customers to provide proof of vaccination, counterfeit vaccination cards have begun to proliferate, with cases slowing becoming more frequent.
