The fake cards were shipped in from 中国, 到达结束 100 整个星期的包裹, 根据美国海关和边境保护局发言人海梅·鲁伊斯（Jaime Ruiz）的说法.
每个包裹大致包含 20 至 25 cards that resembled the authentic Centers for Disease Control and Prevention certificates given to people who actually receive their 疫苗.
“Getting these fraudulent cards off the streets and out of the hands of those who would then sell them is important for the safety of the American public,” Lance Robinson, the agency’s director in Anchorage, 在声明中说.
Buying, selling or using bogus vaccination cards is a 犯罪, the agency has warned, and could be punishable by a fine or up to five years in prison.
Authorities also said that ordering fake vax cards wastes the time of Border Patrol officers, who are also working on finding more consequential contraband, like drugs.
