Protect yourself from COVID-19 vaccine scams 

Scams related to COVID-19 are rapidly increasing. Scammers are targeting older adults and those with serious long-term health conditions who appear to have a higher risk for serious illness from coronavirus.

Scammers are rapidly altering their tactics and adapting their schemes to target the COVID-19 vaccine to prey on unsuspecting beneficiaries. Be vigilant and protect yourself from potential fraud concerning COVID-19 vaccines and treatments.

Here’s what you need to know about the COVID-19 vaccine:

  • You will not pay anything out of pocket to get the vaccine during this public health emergency.
  • You can’t pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine. 
  • You can’t pay to get early access to the vaccine. 
  • Nobody legit will call you about the vaccine and ask for your Social Security, bank account, or credit card number. That’s a scam.
  • No one from Medicare, the health department, a vaccine distribution center or a health insurance company will contact you to ask for your Social Security number,  your credit card or bank account information to sign you up to get the vaccine.
