An Illinois woman was arrested in Hawaii on suspicion of submitting a fake vaccination card to vacation on the island.
What was it that made officials suspicious? Her card said she received the “Maderna” vaccination.
Authorities arrested Chloe Mrozak over the weekend on allegations that she used a fake vaccine card to fly to Hawaii in order to bypass the mandatory 10-day quarantine for unvaccinated visitors according to Hawaii News Now.

According to court documents, the handwritten card said that Mrozak had received two doses of the “Maderna” vaccine in Delaware from National Guard members. Investigators said they received a tip that she may have faked the vaccine document, and Delaware officials told investigators they could find no evidence of Mrozak’s vaccinations in their medical records.
Officials arrested Mrozak on Saturday in the Honolulu airport as she was set to fly home, after identifying her by a distinctive tattoo found in photos on her Facebook. She is being held at a correctional center with bail set at $2,000.
The moral of the story is, while you should never, ever lie on official documents. Never.
But if you are going to do it, you may want to do a quick spell check.
