Ranna Shamiya, the former Director of Pharmacy at Adventist Health Ukiah Valley, has been charged by the United States Department of Justice for her alleged role in a set of elaborate COVID-19 scams that included selling fake COVID-19 cures to patients and doling out falsified vaccination cards. 

As per a press release from the United State Department of Justice, 41-year-old Shamiya was working in concert with a Napa County naturopathic doctor Juli Mazi. Shamiya became aware that Mazi was selling a product called “homeoprophylaxis immunizations” which were claimed to “provide a complete cure for COVID-19.” Mazi would also provide her customers with “fraudulent CDC COVID-19 vaccination record cards to falsely make it appear that customers received FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines. 

Shamiya, using her access to medical information in her role at Adventist Health, would provide Mazi with “legitimate lot numbers for FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccines” to make it appear that the vaccination cards issued by Mazi represented the actual vaccine when they did not.

A press release from the US Department of Justice that announced 21 total individuals now face charges across the United States related to COVID-19 fraud schemes described Shamiya’s alleged actions as misusing “her position as the Director of Pharmacy at a northern California hospital to obtain real lot numbers for the Moderna vaccine that were then used to falsify COVID-19 vaccination record cards.”

These actions have prompted the United State Department of Justice Northern California District of California to charge Shimiya with making “false statements related to health care matters.”

Adam Istas, spokesmen for Mendocino County’s Adventist Health Hospitals told us that Shamiya is no longer an employee of the hospital and Adventist Health “took immediate action” when informed of her alleged role in the scam.

Istas told us patients of Adventist Health should not be concerned that Shamiya’s actions affected their care, characterizing her alleged actions as not a “patient-facing issue.”

In a press release, Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite, Jr. of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division stated, “Today’s enforcement action reinforces our commitment to using all available tools to hold accountable medical professionals, corporate executives, and others who have placed greed above care during an unprecedented public health emergency.”

Assistant Director Luis Quesada of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division stated, “These health care fraud abuses erode the integrity and trust patients have with those in the healthcare industry, particularly during a vulnerable and worrisome time for many individuals.”

It must be stated that the charges described have not been proven in a court of law. In accordance with the legal principle of the presumption of innocence, any individual described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty.



  1. The pharmaceutical employees that committed this crime should receive the punishment that fits the crime they committed‼️💪‼️

  2. with a hat tip to Arsenio and things that make ya go hmmm…

    1) ‘…which were claimed to “provide a complete cure for COVID-19” ‘
    makes me think of things like those shots from pfizer and moderna that were to “provide a complete cure for COVID-19″ yet did not.

    2) “Today’s enforcement action reinforces our commitment to using all available tools to hold accountable medical professionals, corporate executives, and others who have placed greed above care during an unprecedented public health emergency.” Really???????????

    rhetorical question = how is it that the DOJ is not investigating this fraud? it’s pretty clear Fauci and Gates have made greed/profit/control their priority with the manifestation of releasing a gain of function virus, with a remedy in the pipe ready to go which did not provide the “cure”, rather provided us with an “admitted” 27K dead.

    • Had she not been in it for monetary gain I could feel more for her plight. However your point is well taken. The entire “Covid” operation has been a massive fraud. Even more horrifying there are hundreds of thousands dead and millions injured here in the US from the gene therapy inoculation. The perps must not go unpunished. Still they are shooting ups the kids with the brew.
