Health Editor’s Note: Stop placing pictures of your vaccine card on to social media. Being happy about having taken the vaccine is great and wanting to share your feat is also wonderful, but doing so can allow others, those who will never agree to be vaccinated, to continue to walk freely among us.  The numbers on the cards can and are beng copied and used for bogus vaccine cards. 

Now let’s get real truthful about this issue.  While people making money off of scamming people during the COVID-19 pandemic, the scariest and most important point here is that people will purchase these cards, without being immunized against COVID-19, and like the virus itself will be lurking to pass coronavirus to anyone who is unable to take the vaccine. 

Selling the fake cards break federal laws and violate identity theft laws. These cards may become the proof we need to board of plane or to attend events or for other important times in our lives. Anti-vaccine groups have boasted about attaining these cards.  If these cards can be bought/stolen by people who are not vaccinated, they will become another huge blip in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. By all means share your pictures and messages of relief and happiness as you become vaccinated but do not use your card in your picture. The only legitimate COVID-19 vaccine card is the one your receive at your first vaccination. Keep it safe!..Carol

Online Scammers Have a New Offer for You: Vaccine Cards

by Sheera Frenkel/NY Times

SAN FRANCISCO — On Etsy, eBay, Facebook and Twitter, little rectangular slips of paper started showing up for sale in late January. Printed on card stock, they measured 3 by 4 inches and featured crisp black lettering. Sellers listed them for $20 to $60 each, with a discount on bundles of three or more. Laminated ones cost extra.

All were forgeries or falsified copies of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccination cards, which are given to people who have been inoculated against Covid-19 in the United States.

“We found hundreds of online stores selling the cards, potentially thousands were sold,” said Saoud Khalifah, the founder of Fakespot, which offers tools to detect fake listings and reviews online.

The coronavirus has made opportunists out of many people, like those who hoarded bottles of hand sanitizer at the start of the pandemic or those who cheated recipients out of their stimulus checks. Now online scammers have latched on to the latest profit-making initiative: the little white cards that provide proof of shots.

  1. We should be very grateful that there are fake vaccine cards, since what is called the “virus” is nothing but any kind of respiratory illness, flu (which almost no one has got in the past year — Oh, yeah, it must be thanks to tremendous success of the masking, isolation, and social distancing!!) or anything else that some prostituted/bribed/threatened medical professional chooses to call the never yet isolated new Mother of all Viruses. Wake up! We’re being played like a fiddle. Our immune systems are being destroyed by poisoned air, water, food, electronics, and who knows what else. I can only conclude that VT has been prostituted, bribed, and/or threatened. Is it “Plata o Plumo” or just “Repeat the Lie o Plumo”? Or can it be that you actually believe the Official Narrative, even though you question the Official Narrative in just about everything else? Have you not even seen Event 201? Or Plandemic Series, the most viewed documentary of all time, with about 2 billion views?

    • darrell, COVID-19 is real and can be a killer. And yes, because we are masking, distancing, handwashing, we are seeing less colds and less cases of regular influenza….duh! When a medical professional or VT for that matter encourages masking, distancing, hand washing, staying home if you are ill, etc. they are not being prostituted, bribed (no one gets paid at VT) or threatened. They are offering sound advice to try to keep people alive until enough people are vaccinated to halt this pandemic.
