Found vaccination cards for sale on Frederick Craigslist. This can’t be legal.
By - effisforfireball
I reported it to Craigslist for whatever that is worth.
People are freaking dumb.
It’s not like they’re free /s
The same thing on DC Craigslist.For $100 I could buy a printer and some cardstock.
Mine has a sticker with the lot number of the vaccine.. do all legit cards have it ?
No some cards the information is just written, depends on where you got it.
Mine did not have stickers, but did have unique numbers on them that can likely be traced. I got my vaccines at Walgreens.
Mine doesn’t have a sticker and I was there when they gave me both shots so I know I got them.
Mine has the sticker as well.

This is the most impermanent point to note, and should have been reported to the police, not craigslist.
Feeling so strongly about this, I assume that you, now, knowing of this, are presently on the phone with the police reporting it?
A report had been submitted, though it did say fraud charges can't be submitted by a third party, so I don't know if OP needs to be the one.
Anyone could print this at home there is nothing unique or special about them.
So has anyone actually been asked to confirm whether they have been vaccinated? Nobody has asked me, although I volunteer the information to people who are in closer contact with me.
Not yet, but this is one the reasons why I continue to wear a mask in places like the grocery store, even if I've already been fully vaccinated. I hate the feeling that I can't trust the public, but clearly they've shown that they can't be trusted
These MFers were putting gasoline in plastic bags 2 weeks ago. I'll keep the mask on for now.
My job has started requiring vaccine proof in FL
I dont want to get the vaccine (my own beliefs) i dont trust it.
But i need a card. Thats what’s happening
Why’re you in a Maryland subreddit if your job is in Florida? Just find a different job, or get the vaccine.
My work requires us to upload vaccine cards (I work in an office environment and we have been WFH) one coworker uploaded a legit vaccine card but the tech wrote sloppily and my company reported her to the FBI
These aren't like official government documentation or anything. You could use this to lie to a friend but not the government.
In Maryland you can look online to get your Vaccine info. So yes. There is record of it
Of course there is a record -- that's my point, that these cards are not that official record. The government said up front that you won't be asked to provide this card to prove anything (because people asked what happened if they get lost), and they said it's fine, because these cards are not the official documentation; they're just something for your personal records.
My point is this card doesn't get you anything on its own, and the government knows whether you got the vaccine or not, so there's no real value or concern in people selling or buying fakes like there would be fake driver's licenses or fake birth certificates or any other document considered to be actual government documentation. There's no reason creating fakes of these should be illegal when there's nothing official about these cards, real or fake.
The people selling or buying these are just anti-vax or COVID-denying crazies who haven't done their research and thus are assuming the government will use these cards to determine who's been vaccinated, which is not and has never been the plan. I'm cool with those types of idiots wasting their money buying and/or making a useless fake card; it's no skin off my nose.
Edit: Thanks to whoever downvoted these guys' r/woosh; I felt like I was taking crazy pills or didn't articulate clearly what I meant, but now I see it's just your everyday r/woosh x2.
Ok! Upvoted ya. Don’t know if edited, but on second read I read it differently
Report it to the COVID-19 crime department of the government
What will this fake card get you? Nobody has asked for my card. I’m not even sure it would be legal to. Yet. I would like to see the morons who would spend $100 for it.
So how do we get a hold of the FBI
When you think about it... it’s not legal to make people have to use such a thing.
I know the cards vary with info. In my opinion it's super stupid to have fake vaccine cards. You can have whatever paper card you want, but maybe you'll still get sick? I'm so tired of all this. I'm vaxxed and sick of the mask.
When do we ditch the mask? I've followed everything from day 1. I didn't see friends or family for a year. My family is vaxxed. I have only seen one friend. When is it ok to be normal again? I'm feeling done, but I want to be respectful of others.
You can go back to normal now if you are vaxxed. The restrictions have been lifted. Some businesses may still require a mask but that's their choice.
No one “likes” the mask. I have been fully vaccinated for a month now and I follow the rules of what the sign says on the door. If it says I can go without a mask, sometimes I do. Sometimes I choose to wear the mask regardless just so I don’t embolden the fakers or make anyone scared. It’s really not such a big deal.
Outside where it is hot, you don’t have to wear a mask. It’s very simple.
As my mother says to me “may this be your worst problem”
