A woman has reportedly been ‘arrested for making a fake Covid-19 vaccine card’ after a mistake gave her away.
Chloe Mrozak, from Illinois, reportedly attempted to avoid Hawaii’s compulsory 10-day quarantine, which is required for all unvaccinated travellers, by submitting a fraudulent pass.
However, she supposedly labelled Moderna as ‘Maderna’ by mistake.

On August 24, she arrived at Daniel K Inouye International Airport and her error quickly became evident, according to reports. Shortly after, she was arrested.
Unfortunately for Mrozak, she was unable to post the bail of $2000 and had to be placed in custody.
The story became viral when Ian Schuering took to Twitter and posted a photo of the fake card.
He tweeted: “A woman who was arrested in Hawaii for falsifying her vaccination card in order to comply with state travel regulations appear to have written ‘Maderna’ instead of ‘’Moderna’ on it.”
The post was liked over 1000 times and many people took to the comments and shared their thoughts.
One person joked: “Why [would you] get a free vaccine when you [can] get a fake vaccine card for $300?”
Another added: “She could have probably blamed on bad penmanship if it weren’t for the fact that she used an uppercase ‘A’. Turns out, those rules you learn about capitalisation in first grade actually ARE important.”
Hawaii is known for being one of the strictest states when it comes to Covid entry requirements.
Last October, it introduced a Safe Travels initiative which means travellers have to show proof of vaccination to avoid a 10-day quarantine. Alternatively, they can provide a negative Covid-19 test that has been taken within the past three days.
