In Victoria, British Columbia health officials have increased their measures to decrease fraud. Health officials started to report suspected fraudulent COVID-19 immunization records to law enforcement.
Records are reviewed using “strict processes” to prevent fraud and ensure that those who’ve been entered into the system are vaccinated.
The province will mail letters to 1,715 people who tried to submit their personal vaccine records into the registry and failed.
The letters will hopefully encourage these people to get vaccinated.
The Star reported that “the release says British Columbians are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 if they have two shots of Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, Oxford-AstraZeneca or one dose of Johnson & Johnson.”
As of Tuesday, 82.4 per cent of eligible British Columbians five and older had received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
