A bill has gone to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s desk making it a crime to make fake vaccination cards.
State lawmakers in both chambers passed a bill making it illegal to create fake vaccine cards or passports. The real cards are the ones that will be used to get into sporting events, concerts, and shows.
For those who fake the digital vaccine records- the crime will be lumped into computer tampering, which is a felony. Creating a fake paper document would be a misdemeanor.
It’s unclear if the Governor will sign the bill into law.
