(ReliableNews.org) – Restrictions on the unvaccinated are a reality around the country. Hawaii is one of the places that has put rules in place. One woman is now facing charges after trying to get around the tropical state’s regulations.
In August, authorities arrested 24-year-old Chloe Mrozak for allegedly falsifying a vaccination card to get around Hawaii’s required 10-day quarantine for unvaccinated visitors. The Safe Travels Program reported it had come across a possible fake vaccine card after the young woman presented it at the airport.
According to Honolulu’s Khon2 news, the airport screener didn’t get Mrozak’s hotel reservation, and she didn’t have one at the hotel she listed on her Safe Travels documents. Department of the Attorney General Special Agent Wilson Lau said the AG Quarantine Compliance Team contacted Delaware, where she said she received the vaccine. It had no record of the woman receiving the shot. Also, her vaccination card misspelled the vaccine name on the card, calling it “Maderna,” not “Moderna.”

Agents were able to track the young woman using social media, eventually arresting her at the airport as she attempted to fly home. Mrozak reportedly told officials her doctor vaccinated her, and she paid for it, but COVID-19 vaccines are free across the country.
Authorities have placed others under arrest for also trying to pass off fake cards. Agent Lau says he expects more cases to occur.
