A 34-year-old woman has allegedly tried to bribe a pharmacy to lie about her receiving a Covid vaccine in Western Australia's Mid West.

Western Australia Police say the woman attended a Geraldton pharmacy for a pre-booked vaccine appointment on Monday afternoon.

The woman was taken into a consult room before requesting the pharmacist fraudulently administer the vaccine in exchange for money, police said in a statement.

The pharmacist rejected the woman's approach with the woman then leaving the premises.

The pharmacist contacted police, leading to authorities locating a 34-year-old woman from Kalbarri.

She was charged with one count of attempted fraud.

She received bail and is due to appear at Geraldton Magistrates Court on November 18.

The incident comes a day after a Perth nurse allegedly faked a Covid jab for a teenager.
