Woman convicted of felony for having fake vaccination cards

On Monday, New York state police proclaimed that they’d arrested a Cheektowaga woman for having fake vaccination cards.

Kaiyah S. Heinrich, 24, was charged with second-degree possession of a forged instrument, a Class D felony. 

An investigation found Heinrich in possession of two fake CDC Covid-19 immunization record cards, according to the New York State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation. She was arrested and freed on her own recognizance after being arraigned.

Heinrich is due back in court in the Town of Cheektowaga later this month. 

If convicted, the offense carries a maximum sentence of seven years in prison.

When Erie County District Attorney John Flynn spoke about a similar case involving phony vaccination cards used at a Bills game in January, he stressed that if there was a conviction in a case, prison time would “absolutely not” be on the table.

Flynn said at the time, “I would readily admit, this is not the Kennedy assassination. I readily admit this is not the crime of the century. At the end of the day, I’m not going to jam them up. But I can’t just let them go.”
