COVID-19 Vaccine Scams

  • With the vaccine being front of mind right now, this is a focus for scammers.
    This could be a knock at your door, phone call, email or text (examples below).

    Remember:

    1. You can’t pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine.
    2. You can’t pay to get early access to the vaccine.

    3. Nobody legitimate will contact you about the vaccine and ask for:
    • Bank Information.
    • Personal Information.
    • Credit Card or Social Insurance Number
    If you receive an email or text that offers anything related to the vaccine be extremely suspicious.
