COVID-19: Two New York nurses accused of falsifying vaccine cards for profit
Two New York nurses are accused of making substantial profits by falsifying COVID-19 vaccination cards.

Suffolk County police said they charged $220 for adults and $85 for children “per false entry.”
“As nurses, these two people need to understand the importance of legitimate vaccination cards as we all work together to protect public health,” said Suffolk County Police Commissioner Rodney K. Harrison. “This is another example of the fine investigative policing work of the SCPD, and I commend District Attorney Tierney for his partnership.”
