As vaccine mandates and passports gain ground across the U.S., so too are alleged cases of vaccine card fraud. As reported by WGN Chicago, some prosecutors are now treating fake vaccine cards as a federal crime.
But should they be doing that — and is it even legal to do so? Federal investigators say yes, if it involves use of official U.S. seals and lying to federal investigators.
Already, the feds are charging producers of the fraudulent cards with federal offenses that come with up to 15 years in prison for each count, plus additional time for lying.
