HR Should Be On The Lookout For Fake Vaccination Cards

Not what you wanted to hear right?

What are some of the key points to know about fake vaccination cards?

First, they can be bought off the web easily enough.  Second, there are a number of home-grown fake cards as well.  Third, there are people who will hack health records systems to ensure that these fake cards are registered.   The use and forgery of government seals such as the CDC vaccination card is illegal, with violations ranging from a fine of up to $5,000 or up to five years imprisonment for the person using the card.  State laws may also apply as well.  In some cases, jail time could be substantial.  Unfortunately, if HR accepts a fake card, there is a question whether, like in I-9 situations, legal liability could attach to the HR representative (fines and/or jail time) as well as to the employer.
