300 per cent growth in ads on dark web for false vaccine cards in USA

Real Vaccination ID cards are embedded with industry-leading forgery-prevention technology to combat counterfeiting and help people prove their COVID-19 vaccination status. Thankfully, a North Carolina-based company with over two decades of experience verifying 35 million medical documents – including vaccine records – and issuing over half a million badges, is providing both individuals and organizations with a way to prove vaccination status using methods to eliminate the risk of fraud and forgery. 

Launched in January of 2021, the company's Real Vaccination ID is a driver's license-sized card that indicates the cardholder has been vaccinated against COVID-19, and includes a photo ID, name, address date of birth and physical identifiers. Each card is also embedded with industry-leading forgery-prevention technology, making it next to impossible for individuals to counterfeit. Before a card is issued, an individual must also submit proof of identity and vaccination records, which are verified by a team of experts to further reduce the risk of fraud.
