Fake vaccination card from Bulgaria confiscated in Philadelphia

The card is one of more than 30,000 counterfeit cards discovered and confiscated since the COVID-19 vaccine was first rolled out.

PHILADELPHIA — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Philadelphia discovered a counterfeit COVID-19 vaccination card during routine international baggage inspections, the CBP said on Friday.

The card is one of more than 30,000 counterfeit cards discovered and confiscated since the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine began, customs officials say.

Officials said they “immediately noticed” the poor quality of the map; The logos of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and US Health and Human Services were unclear, and the borders were inconsistent.

A greeting card concealed the card, which was inside a mailing envelope addressed from Bulgaria to an address in Stamford, Connecticut.

Officials who found this fake vaccination card belong to the Baltimore Field Office for US Customs and Border Patrol. In total, this authority uncovered a total of 1,520 counterfeit cards in 41 different seizures.

CBP officials in Philadelphia are reminding the public that it is against the law to buy, sell or use a fake vaccination card. In addition, a press release from US Customs and Border Protection on the incident said: “While fake vaccination cards are sold for up to $200, the CDC is reminding people that an actual vaccination is free.”
