Scores of NYC teachers accused of submitting fake vaccine cards are caught up in a $1.5 million scheme allegedly run by a Long Island pediatric center, The Post has learned.
The 82 teachers claimed to have gotten COVID-19 immunizations from Wild Child Pediatric Healthcare in Amityville, which specializes in holistic and natural treatments.
The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office charges that two nurses distributed phony vaccine cards to hundreds of consumers, charging adults $220 for each dose shown on the card ($440 for both) and children $85 in a scandal resulting from vaccine mandates imposed by governments and corporations.
Julie DeVuono, the center’s owner and operator, is also accused of committing a felony by falsely reporting clients as vaccinated in the New York State Immunization Information System.
On the condition of anonymity, three Queens instructors whose names popped up as Wild Child customers spoke to The Post. They all denied paying for forged vaccination cards, claiming that they had received the shots and that their vaccination cards were genuine.
