A woman was on Wednesday arrested for allegedly forging a Covid-19 vaccine certificate.
In a release police said following a report made at the Rose Hall Outpost by the staff nurse attached to the Williamsburg Health Centre, police arrested and placed on bail a 49-year-old female for the allegation of forgery.
According to the report, the suspect visited the health centre and reported that her card was misplaced and requested a replacement.
The suspect states that she received her first dose on May 27, 2021 and was due for her second shot on June 25, 2021.
However she had booked a flight to the USA and was scheduled to depart on the said date of the alleged offence.
She was told by the nurse that she is required to start over the process for another Covid-19 Vaccine Certificate, to which she agreed.
After she received the Covid-19 Vaccine Certificate she left the Health Centre without having the process completed.
At home, she forged the nurse responsible for administering the Covid-19 Vaccine’s signature on the said Certificate.
