The Jean Coutu Group Inc. is warning its pharmacies to be vigilant, after a man presented himself as a vaccine inspector at one of their locations.

A security memo obtained by CBC Montreal says the man showed up one hour before closing and said he was with a security agency tasked with verifying their stock of vaccines.

A spokesperson for Jean Coutu told CBC that Repentigny police are investigating the April 12 incident and the pharmacy chain could not comment further. Repentigny is an off-island suburb just east of Montreal.

The memo says the man even presented documentation and identification supporting his claims.

The manager of the location told the man they were not aware of inspections and did not give him access to the stock, the memo says.
