For more than a year and a half, the world has been affected by the pandemic. Among the things that have changed the most are the protocols and rules imposed for mobilization and travel. They have changed as the pandemic has progressed and more is known about the disease, and more recently as people have been vaccinated.
Some sites even ask for a vaccination card to allow the entry of people to avoid the spread of Covid-19 and its variants, however, there are those who still, despite all the available information, refuse to be vaccinated.
Chloe Mrozak, 24 is one of them. She had planned a trip to Hawaii despite not having been vaccinated yet. Knowing that at some point in her trip they would request a vaccination certificate to allow her to continue with her journey, she decided the best solution would be to falsify it.
The Illinois woman traveled to Hawaii on August 23 and in order to avoid the 2-week quarantine period, she presented a fake vaccination card at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport. Authorities also report that she gave false information about where she would be staying during her days in Hawaii.
The false vaccination card indicates that Mrozak obtained the vaccine from her in Delaware. However, the authorities contacted the alleged vaccination center and confirmed that she had never been there.
Mrozak is charged with two misdemeanor counts of falsifying vaccination documents, and faces up to a year in prison and up to $5,000 in fines if convicted. She was detained while attempting to enter her flight back home.
The most curious thing in the whole story is that perhaps she could have gotten away with it if she had been a little more careful because the reason why the authorities began to suspect the validity of her certificate is that they realized that the vaccine was misspelled.
Mrozak had forged a vaccination certificate and wrote Maderna instead of Moderna.
