Warning - Coronavirus Vaccine Scam


There have been reports of a new scam where a person receives a text saying they need to book a vaccination appointment and it takes them to a fake NHS form which then asks for their bank details to prove their identity.

The NHS will never ask for a person’s banking information so please do not provide as it will be a scam.  If the NHS contacts you for a vaccine, they will not ask for any kind of financial or banking information.

If you are unsure if a text is genuine, don't hand over your personal details. You can read more advice in the following scam advice leaflet.  

There is a texting scam leaflet you can download

The scam has been reported in the media so you can read more about how scammers are trying to take advantage of those seeking a vaccine.
