COVID vaccination scam alert

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.
