Health Ministry to investigate Telegram group post offering fake vaccine certificate

A telegram group posting offering three different types of false vaccine certificates, including ones with scannable QR codes from the MySejahtera application has gone viral.

Screenshots of the chatgroup found on social media show the various “packages” offered with different pricing.

Those interested can choose to pay RM1,500 for a vaccine certificate through the MySejahtera application using their own account with a scannable QR code, RM400 for a “clone” vaccine certificate using another person’s personal details, and RM200 for a fake vaccine card.

The telegram group, which also used to sell Ivermectin, an anti-parasite drug widely touted as a treatment for Covid-19, has 280 active members. The health ministry was investigating the matter.

Previously, the ministry had said stern action would be taken against those attempting to falsify digital Covid-19 vaccine certificates.

There is believed to be a demand for such fake certificates from anti-vaxxers and those who have not received their vaccinations for various reasons.

Many owners of premises increasingly require proof of double vaccinations before allowing anyone to enter their premises.
