We have been made aware of a COVID vaccine scam which is targeting patients via email/text requesting banking details/payment for the vaccine.
Please be assured that the COVID-19 vaccine is free of charge on the NHS.
The NHS will contact you when it’s your turn to have the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination. We will contact you by letter, text or email with information on how to book your appointment.
The NHS will never ask for:
- your bank account or card details
- your pin or banking password
- copies of personal documents to prove your identity such as your passport, driving licence, bills or pay slips
If you think you have been a victim of fraud or identify theft, please report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
