Florida couple arrested after entering Hawaii with fake vaccination cards, officials say:

The couple’s children were too young to be inoculated with any of the approved vaccinations, according to WTVJ. That raised a red flag with authorities on the ground in Honolulu when they were presented with vaccination cards for the children, who were born in 2016 and 2017.

Being vaccinated is not a requirement to visit Hawaii. The Aloha State’s official travel website says only a negative test within the last 72 hours is required to avoid a mandatory 10-day quarantine upon arrival. Domestic travelers who are able to offer proof showing that they have been fully vaccinated have been able to visit Hawaii without testing or quarantine since July 8.

If you get the Pfizer or Moderna vaccinations both shots take around a month and cost you the time to get them. If you go for the Johnson & Johnston it’s only one shot and is also free. I’ve heard that a fake vaccination card can cost up to $400. Which is still more expensive than getting a quick Covid test before your flight. They are facing fines of $2000 per fake card to avoid a 10 day quarantine period. These are the type of criminals that annoyed me the most when I was wearing a badge. I wanted New York to pass a law making this level of stupid a felony.
