EATON, N.Y. — A New York man was arrested after authorities said he provided a forged COVID-19 vaccination card to his employer.

The 24-year-old from Eaton, New York, was booked on a charge of second-degree possession of a forged instrument — a felony, New York State Police said.

The arrest stemmed from an investigation by the state Health Department’s Vaccination Complaint Investigation Team, which had been contacted by a private company in Marcy, according to state police.
