LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) —With a record-breaking fourth surge of covid-19 cases and hospitalizations in some places you may need to show proof of covid-19 vaccination. 

The requirement for a Covid-19 vaccine has many hesitant which creates temptation to use a fake vaccine card. so, if you buy one and try to use it, what kind of trouble could you get in?

Chris Babin, Vice President of the Better Business Bureau says, "If you don't have a vaccination card because you haven't received the vaccine you should be very leery of trying to create some type of fake vaccination card because that can lead to federal violations of different statues that are federally in place" 

Louisiana residents are able to use the la wallet app to verify their vaccinated but if you don't have the app it basically boils down to providing your card to prove that you've gotten the shot.

Lafayette resident Marcel Johnson says, "I feel like that's really that's really pointless if you going through all that trouble to get a fake vaccination card just get vaccinated you know if you going through all that

One business owner says if mandating certain things is what it takes to get back to normal, he's all for it.

Malek Abdalla says, "My wish is literally for all of us as people in general to take things a little bit seriously because this disease literally kills people and if it takes us to put a mask to kind of prevent good amount of percentage let's do it"

One alternative for vaccination cards for louisiana residents is the la wallet which shows proof of Covid-19 vaccination.
