A South Australian woman has been charged over paying money to a vulnerable person to have a COVID-19 vaccine in her name.
Police allege that on January 10, the 52-year-old from Chapel Hill accompanied another person to a Mount Barker vaccination clinic, deceiving SA Health by allowing the vulnerable person to receive the COVID-19 vaccination in her name.
It is further alleged the woman pretended to be a carer for the person who received the vaccine and that she required evidence of vaccination for her own employment.
She has been charged with deception and dishonest dealing with documents and has been bailed to appear in Mount Barker Magistrates Court in March.
Premier Steven Marshall said if the allegations proved correct, it was "completely unacceptable behaviour".
