A registered nurse and a nursing assistant in Linden were both dragged before the Magistrates’ Court in the town to face forgery charges.
The two, Nurse Sandrene Chapman and Nursing Assistant Anastasia McKenzie were arrested last week in relation to the sale of vaccination booklets at One Mile Health Centre.
They both appeared in Court today via Zoom and were not required to enter a plea to the indictable charge.
They were each granted bail in the sum of $200,000 and will have to report to the Police station in the town on the first Monday of every month for the duration of the trial.
Linden has one of the lowest vaccination rates in the country.
An investigation was launched into the operations at the One Mile Health Centre after it was suspected that more vaccination cards were being issued than vaccines administered.
A Linden resident, Gregory Abrams also appeared in Court today charged in connection with uttering a forged document. He is accused of being in possession of a fake vaccine card, that is suspected of being procured from the same One Mile Health Centre.
