Falsifying a vaccine certificate is a federal crime

As Jalisco introduces measures for patrons of bars and large-scale events to show proof of Covid vaccination, Jalisco Governor Enrique Alfaro has warned about the consequences of forging such documents.

“Falsifying an official document is a crime,” he stressed this week.

According to the federal Penal Code, the sanction for such a crime ranges from four to eight years in prison, plus a hefty fine.  If the crime is carried out by a public servant, the prison time can be increased to a maximum of 12 years.


Everyone who has been fully vaccinated in Mexico can download the official certificado de vacunación contra Covid-19 at cvcovid.salud.gob.mx, or via Whats App at 561-713-0557. 

In the latter case, simply send the message “Hola,” and follow the subsequent instructions.
