    Criminals are using the COVID-19 vaccine as a way to target the public by tricking them to hand over cash or financial details. They are sending convincing-looking text messages letting people know they are eligible for the vaccine or phoning people directly pretending to be from the NHS, or local pharmacy.

     

    The NHS will:

    NEVER ask for payment – the vaccine is free

    NEVER ask for your bank details

    NEVER arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine

    NEVER ask you to prove your identity by sending copies of personal documents such as your passport
