Fraudulent calls and text messages – COVID-19 vacccination

Posted on February 1st, 2021

We are aware that some patients are receiving fraudulent calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination. In some cases, people are asked to press a number on their keypad or to send a text message to confirm they wish to receive the vaccine. Doing so is likely to result in a charge being applied to their phone bill. In other cases, callers are offering the vaccine for a fee or asking for bank details. The vaccine is only available from the NHS and the NHS will contact you when it is your turn.

This message here is an example of a fraudulent scam.
