NYC Sanitation Workers Suspended Amid Probe Into ‘Bogus Vaccination Cards’
In New York City, several dozen sanitation workers have been suspended without pay amid an investigation into the legitimacy of the employees’ COVID-19 vaccination cards.
“[The Department of Investigations] is aware of allegations involving the issuance of bogus vaccination cards and declines further comment.”
Red flags were raised when the employees allegedly submitted vaccine cards that indicated they’d received a Johnson & Johnson shot at a CVS Pharmacy. The pharmacy hasn’t administered J&J vaccines in six months.
“These are very concerning allegations and we take them very seriously — getting vaccinated is important to public health, and we do not tolerate anyone faking something that is a requirement of city employment,” spokesman Joshua Goodman said.
