How do I report the suspected use of fake COVID vaccination cards?

Vaccination record cards are intended to provide recipients of the COVID-19 vaccine with information about the type of vaccine they received, and when they may be able to receive another dose of the vaccine, if applicable. If you did not receive the vaccine, do not buy fake vaccine cards, do not make your own vaccine cards, and do not fill-in blank vaccination record cards with false information. By misrepresenting yourself as vaccinated when entering schools, mass transit, workplaces, or businesses, you put yourself and others around you at risk of contracting COVID-19. Additionally, the unauthorized use of an official government agency's seal (such as from the DPH, HHS or CDC) is a crime, and may be punishable under Title 18 United States Code, Section 1017, and other applicable laws.

To report suspicious activity involving fake vaccination record cards, contact the Connecticut Department of Public Health at DPH.Immunizations@ct.gov or 860-509-7929, or contact your appropriate government agency if this is in another state, and please report this to the HHS-OIG (1-800-HHS-TIPS or www.oig.hhs.gov); or the Internet Crime Complaint Center (www.ic3.gov).
