CBP seizes thousands of fake COVID-19 jab cards in Alaska

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at an express consignment facility at the port of Anchorage seized over 3,000 counterfeit COVID-19 vaccination cards arriving from China.

The shipments of these cards have low quality printing, but are intended to closely resemble the authentic Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) certificates provided by healthcare practitioners when administering COVID vaccines, according to CBP.

Recently, CBP has been seizing a high volume of counterfeit vaccination cards throughout the country, with 15 shipment intercepted in one night in Memphis earlier this month.

The cards have blanks for the recipient's name and birthdate, the vaccine maker, lot number, and date and place the shot was given, as well as the CDC logo in the upper right corner, but generally include typos and unfinished words, while some of the Spanish text on the back is misspelled.
