Prosecutors have charged Utah plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Kirk Moore Jr., 58, and several others with “conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to convert, sell, convey, and dispose of government property, conversion sale, conveyance, and disposal of government property, and aiding and abetting after allegedly giving people fake vaccination cards and destroying government-provided COVID-19 vaccinations.”
The good doctor also allegedly administered saline shots instead of COVID-19 shots to kids per their parents’ requests. Court documents allege Moore falsified 1,900 doses’ worth of fake completed vaccination record cards for direct cash payments of $50 per person per occurrence or required “donations to a specified charitable organization.” They also show the fake vaccination cards had a total value of nearly $97,000.
Moore and his neighbor, Kristin Jackson Andersen, 59, were members of a private organization seeking to “liberate the medical profession from government and industry conflicts of interest,” according to court documents.
Special Agent Curt L. Muller with the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General issued the following statement:
The defendants will make their first court appearance on Jan. 26.
