PNP on Alert Against Fake Vaccination Cards Allegedly Used by Travelers

The Philippine National Police (PNP) is on alert after reports claims some travelers are using fake vaccination cards in conjunction with easing interzonal travel.

PNP Chief, General Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar alerted his personnel against the possible exploitation of travelers using fake vaccination cards. Eleazar’s order was also triggered by a statement by Presidential Spokesperson Secretary Harry Roque that interzonal travel is now allowed to fully vaccinated individuals against COVID-19.

According to Eleazar, it is possible to use a fake vaccination card proving that they have been vaccinated to allow them to go out or visit different provinces. He said the PNP will coordinate and work closely with the LGUs in enforcing this latest guideline.

 “I am directing all police offices and units to be vigilant against those travelers who might use fake documents to prove that they are fully-vaccinated,” said Eleazar.

Eleazar said that if the RT-PCR test findings are fabricated, they may be able to utilize phony vaccination records as well. This, he stated, should be avoided. Eleazar further cautioned passengers not to get complacent and to adhere to minimum public health safety norms.

“We still need to strictly adhere to our minimum public health safety standards such as wearing face masks and face shields, social distancing and regular hand washing,” the PNP chief added.
