According to the police, there are currently 106 investigations in connection with forged vaccination cards in Brandenburg. So far this year such facts in the lower three-digit range have become known to the police, said Torsten Herbst, spokesman for the Brandenburg police headquarters, on request.
Among other things, it is about the suspicion of forgery of documents or the issuing of incorrect or falsified health certificates. Most of the cases were recorded in September (33), October (30) and November (17). The numbers could change due to criminal charges recorded later.
According to Herbst, the police headquarters contacted the State Chamber of Pharmacists at the beginning of October. It was informed about this crime phenomenon, he said. The pharmacies in the country have been made aware of the need to inform the police immediately. “And that seems to work well from the police point of view,” said Herbst. The vast majority of the reported cases were discovered through careful examination of the pharmacists.
Anyone who obtains a digital vaccination certificate with a forged vaccination certificate must expect that it will be discovered and consistently prosecuted, he said.
