A new report claims that two New York City agencies, including the New York City Fire Department, submitted fraudulent vaccine cards to comply with the city’s vaccine regulation.
The Sanitation Bureau and the FDNY are being investigated, according to New York Post.
The Post newspaper said blank card appears to have been stolen from FDNY’s Brooklyn headquarters, citing a source it did not name.
Firefighters were warned in an October 30 memo that forging an “official immunization card” for “the purpose of demonstrating vaccination compliance” could result in a felony.
A source the Post called an FDNY insider said some of the stolen blank cards may have been sold, adding that “There have been related Venmo transactions.”
Prior to the mission, firefighters protested the order, saying it would lead to a reduction in strength because large numbers of firefighters would not be vaccinated.
The sanitation worker seems to have been arrested fake The Post reported, saying 50 workers had been suspended out of an estimated 150 involved.
As the Post reported, CVS employees filed cards saying the sanitation workers involved – most of them from Staten Island – had been given a single dose of Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine.
One glitch: CVS didn’t distribute Johnson & Johnson footage, the source told the Post.

“I think what they did was incredibly stupid. Either get vaccinated or accept the consequences,” said the insider.
A spokesman for the Department of Sanitation said it was “actively investigating” the workers who submitted false evidence.
Diane Struzzi, a spokeswoman for the city’s Bureau of Investigation, said the agency was “aware of allegations regarding bogus vaccination cards and declined to comment further”.

Sanitation spokesman Joshua Goodman said, “These are very disturbing allegations and we take them very seriously – vaccination is important to public health and we do not tolerate anyone. Anyone fake something is a requirement of jobs in the city.
“Anyone we find has submitted a fraudulent vaccination card will be suspended without payment,” he continued.

As of Thursday, 87 percent of sanitation workers, 86 percent of firefighters and 92 percent of EMS workers had been vaccinated.
