Tucker Carlson defends fake vaccination cards
Fox News’s Tucker Carlson claimed Thursday that those who tamper with and buy fake COVID-19 vaccine cards are not breaking the law and behaving in an “act of desperation.”
Carlson explained to Fox News that he believes that obtaining and tampering with fraudulent vaccination cards is “not a serious crime” and that those who do are “forced into a corner.” The daily beast reported.
Comments come after Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. filed a lawsuit Tuesday against 15 people allegedly linked to a fake COVID-19 vaccination card plot, Axios reported. Thirteen of these people are reported to work in essential employee settings, including hospitals.

A woman reportedly promoted and sold nearly 250 fake vaccination cards via Instagram for $ 200 with an additional fee of $ 250. Another person then entered by mistake at least 10 people in the New York State Immunization Information System database, according to Axios.
The woman is accused of offering a fake instrument of first degree deposit, fifth degree conspiracy and criminal possession of a second degree counterfeit instrument.
“We will continue to protect public health in New York City with proactive investigations like these, but the stakes are too high to tackle bogus vaccination cards with legal action,” Vance said, according to Axios. “We need companies like Facebook to take action to prevent fraud on their platforms. “
Responding to the accusations, Carlson said: “Buying a fake vaccination card is not a, I quote, a ‘serious crime’.”
“It’s not even close to a serious crime. Buying a fake immunization card is an act of desperation on the part of honest, law-abiding Americans who have been forced to find themselves stranded by tyrants, ”he said.
The host also falsely claimed that people are forced to “take medicine that they don’t need or want”.
