Vulnerable people in DTES being offered money to get fraudulent vaccine

BY The Canadian Press, Jan 14, 2022 5:38 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Vancouver Coastal Health says it has prevented recent attempts to fraudulently obtain B-C vaccine cards.

It says ``vulnerable people'' in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside have been approached and offered payment to get vaccinated while falsely using that person's name and information.

The health authority says fraudulent vaccination records are being removed from the provincial immunization registry and the cards are being revoked.

It says future instances of fraud will be brought to police.
