Juli A. Mazi, 41, of Napa became the first person to be federally charged for fake Covid vaccine cards and making false statements ‘related to health care matters.’
The California homeopathic doctor is accused of falsifying Covid vaccine cards and ‘spreading misinformation about FDA-authorized vaccinations.’
“This defendant allegedly defrauded and endangered the public by preying on fears and spreading misinformation about FDA-authorized vaccinations, while also peddling fake treatments that put people’s lives at risk. Even worse, the defendant allegedly created counterfeit COVID-19 vaccination cards and instructed her customers to falsely mark that they had received a vaccine, allowing them to circumvent efforts to contain the spread of the disease,” said Deputy Attorney General Lisa O. Monaco.
The Justice Department said Mazi profited from peddling unapproved “immunization pellets” that she claimed would provide “lifelong immunity to COVID-19.”
Mazi explained that the pellets contained a “very minute amount of this [COVID-19] disease” that can result in “infectious symptoms”
