Vaccine Scam Alert

In the UK, coronavirus vaccines will only be available via the @NHSuk. You can be contacted by the NHS, your employer, a GP surgery or pharmacy local to you, to receive your vaccine. Remember, the vaccine is free of charge. At no point will you be asked to pay #coronavirusfrauds

The vaccine is a crucial tool in fighting the coronavirus and keeping people safe. Thankfully, the number of reports into Action Fraud are relatively low but we have seen an increase in the last two months, particularly around scam text messages #coronavirusfrauds

Remember, the vaccine is only available on the NHS and is free of charge. If you receive an email, text message or phone call purporting to be from the NHS and you are asked to provide financial details, or pay for the vaccine, this is a scam #coronavirusfrauds

Action Fraud has received reports of fake text messages, claiming to be from @NHSuk, instructing people to sign up for the #COVID19 vaccine. The texts contain a link to an online form, which looks very similar to the real NHS website, where people are asked to input their details

If you receive a text or email that appears to be a scam, report it to Action  Fraud at:
