A 36-year-old man from Ilford was arrested last Tuesday
A 28-year-old woman was arrested on Wednesday, 22 December on suspicion of conspiracy to commit offences under section 2 of the Computer Misuse Act, fraud by false representation and money laundering.
She remains in police custody, two laptops and two mobile phones have been seized as part of their investigation.
Officers from the Met’s Cyber Unit launched an investigation after they were made aware of suspicious vaccination records on an NHS Trust’s online systems.
They arrested a 36-year-old man from Ilford on Tuesday, 14 December on suspicion of unauthorised computer access and conspiracy to commit fraud by misrepresentation.
He has been released from police custody but he remains under investigation.
Both people who have been arrested are employed by the same NHS Trust.
Detective Inspector Alex Flanagan, from the Cyber Crime Unit, said: “Following arrests last week regarding two separate investigations into fake vaccine records, we have identified a fourth person suspected to be involved. Misuse of IT systems is extremely serious, we will be analysing all devices seized and are working closely with our partners.
“I want to stress that no systems were hacked into from outside of NHS networks.
“If anyone has information regarding fraudulent Covid-19 vaccination records then it is important you report what you know to Action Fraud.”
