Covid-19 Vaccine Scam Information

Criminals are using the Covid-19 vaccine as a way to target the public by tricking them to hand over cash or financial details.

The vaccine is free and only available on the NHS. 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
