In Germany, a 60-year-old man reportedly had himself vaccinated against COVID-19 dozens of times in order to sell falsified vaccination cards with real vaccine batch numbers to individuals who did not want to be vaccinated themselves.
The man from the eastern German city of Magdeburg, whose name was not released due to German privacy laws, is said to have obtained up to 90 shots against COVID-19 at vaccination facilities in the eastern state of Saxony for months before being caught by criminal police earlier this month, according to the German news agency dpa.Embed from Getty Images
The accused was not detained, but is being investigated for unapproved vaccination card issuance and document fraud, according to dpa.
He was apprehended at a vaccination facility in Eilenburg, Saxony, for the second day in a row when he popped up for a COVID-19 shot. He was arrested after police seized numerous blank vaccination cards from him.

In recent months, German authorities have performed many raids in connection with the fabrication of vaccination passports.
Various COVID-19 sceptics refuse to be vaccinated in Germany, but seek the highly sought COVID-19 passports, which allow them easier access to public life and many places such as restaurants, cinemas, swimming pools, and businesses.
