Vaccine Scams – beware and stay safe

January 12, 2021 | Southmedia

Don’t fall for one of these scams circulating

Sadly there are some people out there who are out to take advantage of the vaccine roll out and there are a number of scams being operated.

One is a fake NHS text message telling people they’re eligible to apply for the COVID-19 vaccine. A link directs you to a fake NHS website that asks for your personal/bank details to ‘check your identity’. 

The NHS will not ask you to apply for the COVID-19 vaccine and there is no charge for it. When it’s your turn, we will contact you to book your appointment.
