Two NY Nurses Accused of Making $1.5 Million Selling Fake Vaccine Cards

Two nurses on Long Island are accused of forging COVID-19 vaccination cards and making more than a million dollars from the scheme.

The owner of Wild Child Pediatric Healthcare in Amityville, Julie DeVuono, and her employee, Marissa Urraro are both charged with felony forgery.

The Suffolk County District Attorney says the two would hand out fake vaccination cards, charging $220 for adults and $85 for kids and then record the fake vaccinations in New York's statewide Immunization database.

This isn't DeVuono's first go around with skirting vaccines.

According to the Washington Post:

For years, Julie DeVuono has offered to help people avoid vaccination. In 2017 and 2018, the nurse’s pediatric practice advertised “vaccine exemption workshops” that it said would detail tips for “the best chance of acceptance.”
