Illinois woman arrested after using fake COVID vaccination card that read MADERNA to enter Hawaii

A spelling-challenged Illinois woman who doesn’t know her Moderna from ‘Maderna’ was arrested after using a fake COVID-19 vaccination card to go on vacation in Hawaii, police said.  

Chloe Mrozak, 24, was arrested after authorities looked into the fake COVID-19 vaccination card she presented officials upon her arrival to Oahu last Monday on a Southwest flight. 

Perhaps the most obvious tip off for officials was that Mrozak’s vaccination card misspelled ‘Moderna’ as ‘Maderna’, court documents allege. 

The aspiring model from Oak Lawn in Illinois also listed Delaware as the place where she got her vaccination and claimed it was administered by ‘cpl wolf’ and ‘ssgt montey’ of the National Guard.

Mrozak left the airport without confirming her hotel reservation with screeners, listing the Holiday Inn Express in Waikiki as the place of her stay as well as leaving no return flight details, wane.com reported. 

Hawaii uses the Safe Travels program to verify incoming travelers’ COVID test and vaccination records.

State law requires visitors to either provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test taken no more than 72 hours before arriving in the state. 

Officials were able to confirm there were no reservations at the hotel under her name and investigators continued to look into her alleged fake vaccination card throughout the duration of her trip. 

A special agent in charge of the investigation contacted officials in Delaware and found no record of her getting vaccinated and also searched Mrozak’s Facebook profile and found she had a large tattoo on her left hip, CBS 2 reported.  

Officials were able to identify the woman because of a very distinctive bible verse tattoo on her left hip that reads: ‘So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary but what is unseen is eternal’  

Authorities caught up with her at the Southwest Airlines departure desk at Daniel K. Inouye international Airport on Saturday and recognized her because of her tattoo. 

 She was arrested on suspicion of falsified vaccination documents and told officers she paid her doctor for the vaccination shot, wave3.com reported.  

Unable to post $2,000 bail, Mrozak is currently being held in a local correction facility.

Since news of her arrest broke her public Facebook profile has been flooded with comments, including one person who said she will neve live down this decision.

‘The best part is that this act of stupidity will persist on the Internet for years …. and will show up every time a potential employer does a search on her name.’ someone commented.  

There were also comments mocking her spelling error. 

‘Maybe she will try to take the Jonestown & Jonestown vaccination next…’ someone else wrote. 

Mrozak is not the only person to get busted by Hawaiian authorities, earlier this month a Florida couple were arrested after allegedly presenting fake COVID vaccination cards to airport staff when they arrived for a vacation in Hawaii. 

Enzo Dalmazzo, 43, and Daniela Dalmazzo, 31, were arrested on August 11 – shortly after they arrived in Honolulu with their two children.

The couple allegedly gave officials vaccination cards for themselves and their two children.

But a TSA agent became suspicious about the children’s vaccination cards because they would have been too young to get the shot. 

According to court documents obtained by NBC Miami, Enzo has been charged with one count of presenting false documents and Daniela has been charged with three counts – two of which relate to the children. 

They were released on a combined $8,000 bail – a $2,000 bail for Enzo and a $6,000 bail for Daniela.
