Don't get scammed: Report suspected COVID-19 fraud

The Washington State Department of Health warns people to report suspected COVID-19 heath care fraud. 

Criminals are using the COVID-19 emergency to steal personal and medical information from people across the country. You should not respond to unsolicited requests to conduct COVID-19 testing, obtain a COVID-19 vaccine, or provide your personal and medical information. If you suspect COVID-19 health care fraud, report it immediately online or call 800-HHS-TIPS (800-447-8477).

Here are some ways to avoid scams:

  • Offers to purchase COVID-19 vaccination cards are scams. Valid proof of COVID-19 vaccination can only be provided to individuals by legitimate providers administering vaccines.
  • Photos of COVID-19 vaccination cards should not be shared on social media. Posting content that includes your date of birth, health care details or other personally identifiable information can be used to steal your identity.
  • Be vigilant and protect yourself from potential fraud concerning COVID-19 vaccines. You will not be asked for money to enhance your ranking for vaccine eligibility. Government and state officials will not call you to obtain personal information in order to receive the vaccine.
  • Ignore offers or advertisements for COVID-19 testing or treatments on social media sites. If you make an appointment for a COVID-19 test online, make sure the location is an official testing site.

Keep it up, Kitsap!

We are moving in the right direction. The spread of COVID-19 is slowing down and cases and hospitalizations are decreasing. We are getting the vaccine out as quickly and fairly as possible. These signs of success are encouraging — and only possible because of you. People in Kitsap County pitched in and followed the safety measures to slow the spread, and it is working!

With a faster-spreading COVID-19 variant now here in Washington state, we need to keep it up! We all play a role in keeping each other safe. Continue to wear a mask, stay six feet away from others, and wash your hands. Get tested if needed and get the vaccine when it’s your turn.
