California Attorney General Rob Bonta is warning people not to print fake COVID-19 vaccination cards.
That is a warning that might seem obvious to law-abiding citizens.
But Bonta says phony vaccination cards are being advertised on social media, and blogs.
People who are not interested in getting the Covid-19 vaccine, for whatever reason, might try to get a fake card indicating they have gotten the vaccine, and Bonta says that could undermine public health.
Of course, getting your hands on a fake Covid-19 vaccination card, is illegal.
And making those cards is illegal too.
Bonta reminds Californians that vaccines are free, and anyone over the age of 12 can get one. Vaccination sites can be found at www.rivcoph.org/covid-19-vaccine.
