Beware of COVID-19 Vaccine Fraud and Scams

We have seen an increased rate of fraud and scams related to the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. Please be aware of fraud:


  • If someone calls, texts, or emails you or a family member promising access to the vaccine for a fee, you should not share your personal or financial information.
  • No one should ask you to pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine.
  • No one should ask you to pay to get early access to a vaccine.
