Man in Germany has more than 87 doses of Covid-19 vaccine as part of scam to sell vaccine passports
Chile, some people will try anything for a dime! A man in Germany has received 87 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine. The 61-year-old is believed to have planned to sell vaccine cards filled with information from his many medical visits, each Newsweek.
German police have not yet released the man’s identity, but an investigation is underway. Authorities arrested the fraud allegation after a complaint was filed by the German branch of the Red Cross, Kai Kranich.
Apparently, this man sometimes gets the vaccine up to three times a day. A local newspaper Freie Presse reported that he solved this problem by visiting multiple vaccination sites. He would then give vaccine administrators a blank card with his real name on it.
After officials signed the card, the man managed to clear his name to leave for his customers. And his clients are classified as “anti-vaccination advocates.”
A spokesman for the German Red Cross said: “We then observed this and alerted other vaccination centers in Saxony.
The man is also accused of providing false information about his medical history when interacting with medical professionals. He barely showed his health insurance while signing up, which could put him under surveillance for too long. As Red Cross officers peeked at the scene, they were instructed to call the police if the man showed up for another shot.
Newsweek reported that it was not clear how much cash the man had earned. However, he ended up doing his business in the German state of Saxony. He began his alleged scheme in July 2021. Police said it was suspected he may have had more vaccines than the known number 87.
A vaccine passport is like the vaccine card you may have received if you had one or more doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.
