Protect Yourself From COVID-19 Vaccine Scams

As vaccine distribution begins across the country, scammers will be tagging right along. Here’s what you need to know to avoid a vaccine-related scam:

  • You cannot pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine.

  • You cannot pay to get early access to the vaccine.

  • No one from a vaccine distribution site or health care payer (i.e.: a private insurance company) will call you asking for your Social Security number, or your credit card or bank account information, to sign you up to get the vaccine.

  • Hang up if you get a call about the vaccine that asks for your Social Security number, bank account, or credit card number.

  • Ignore any vaccine offers asking for personal or financial information.

  • Beware of advertisements offering other products, treatments, or medicines to prevent the virus. Check with your health care provider before paying for or receiving any COVID-19-related treatment. Also, refrain from investing in businesses touting products, services, or cures for COVID-19.
