OAK LAWN - An Oak Lawn woman was arrested Saturday for allegedly using a fake COVID-19 vaccine card to travel to Hawaii.
Hawaii News Now reports authorities became suspicious when they noticed "Moderna" on the vaccine card was spelled wrong. It was spelled "Maderna," court documents allege.
Chloe Mrozak, 24, was charged with falsifying vaccine documents — a misdemeanor offense.

Screeners were skeptical of Mrozak's supposed CDC card when she arrived Aug. 23 at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, according to a report filed by investigators with the Hawaii attorney general’s office.
The fake vaccine card claimed Mrozak was vaccinated in Delaware, according to the report. However, officials say no state record exists.
Investigators were unable to find her initially because the hotel reservation she left with screeners turned out to be incorrect.
Mrozak allegedly ignored calls and emails from investigators over the next few days, so they waited for her at the airport for her return flight Saturday.
When they arrested her at the Southwest Airlines counter, she allegedly "made a spontaneous utter" that she’d gotten her shot at a doctor’s office and paid for it, the report says.
Mrozak is being held on $2,000 bail.
