Scammers are selling fake COVID-19 vaccination cards on the dark web to people who do not want to receive the coronavirus vaccine but want the privileges that come with becoming fully vaccinated.

Dr. Michael Seavers, Program Lead Professor of Healthcare Informatics at Harrisburg University, recently weighed in on the matter with abc27 News. Seavers believes turning to digital means of verification would help curb the emergence of fake vaccination cards, but also said those without access to the internet would have a tough time receiving verification.
