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
