Several University Hospital employees have been fired over bogus COVID-19 vaccination cards, news reports say.
Noticeable differences were spotted between the CDC-generated vaccination cards and the forged ones, the Newark-based hospital's president and CEO Dr. Shereef Elnahal told NJ Spotlight.
The fake vaccination cards were an apparent effort to overcome the hospital's mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy announced in June.
It was not clear exactly how many employees were terminated.
The news comes days after a 31-year-old Jasmine Clifford -- who calls herself “Anti-Vax Momma” on social media -- was charged by federal authorities with selling forged COVID vaccine cards online.
