Hawaiian authorities busted vacationers Enzo and Daniela Dalmazzo of Miami for attempted use of fake COVID-19 vaccination cards. Upon arrival at the airport, they showed vaccination cards for themselves and also for their kids. Problem is, their kids were born in 2016 and 2017 so are far too young to have been vaccinated.
The couple was arrested and hit with an $8000 fine.
From NBC Miami:
The arrests were part of the state's Safe Travels program amid the COVID pandemic and were the second known case of visitors using fake vaccination cards within the last week.
"The screener at the airport when they came through noticed an anomaly about the age of the children and the vaccine and that's how we got involved," said Special Agent Joe Logan with the Hawaii Attorney General's Office.
