Dinowitz introduces bill to help prosecute vaccination card forgers

A Bronx lawmaker is hoping to curb the number of fraudulent vaccination cards that are available to New Yorkers and Americans nationwide.

Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz is introducing legislation to make it easier for prosecutors to charge those forging or possessing a forged immunization record with a felony. The new bill from Dinowitz, chair of the Assembly Codes Committee, would add explicit language to the definitions of forgery in the second and third degrees that addresses forged immunization records.
