Govt Acts On Fake Vaccination Cards

The government  has strengthened security features on the new Covid-19 vaccination certificates after reports of the counterfeits hitting the streets, Information minister Monica Mutsvangwa has said.

Speaking during the post-cabinet media briefing, Mutsvangwa warned that the government would descend heavily on culprits tampering with the COVID-19 certificates.

This follows reports that some members of staff at some clinics are issuing fake vaccination cards to people who want to evade taking the jab.
“Following reports of production of fake vaccination cards by unscrupulous individuals, the government in liaison with Fidelity Printers and the Registrar General’s Office has strengthened security measures through designing a water-tight vaccination certificate card,” Mutsvangwa said.

Mutsvangwa said the new cards will be printed by Fidelity Printers and will exhibit enhanced security features.

“Government will leave no stone unturned in apprehending greedy malcontents bent on tampering with the security features of the vaccination card,” she said.

The vaccination campaign which started on February 18 2021 is ongoing, with 166,543 people having received their first jab while 27,134 got their second as of Thursday.
