COVID SCAM ALERT!

⚠️ We are aware of a fraudulent email being circulated which appears to be from the #NHS advising patients they have been selected to receive a #COVID19 vaccination ⚠️


We can confirm that COVID-19 vaccination invitations are not being sent by email.


Invitations are sent by:

✅ Letter

✅ Text message from your GP practice

✅ Direct phone call


Also:

❌ The NHS will never ask you for your bank account or card details.

❌ The NHS will never ask you for your PIN or banking password.

❌ The NHS will never arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine.

❌ The NHS will never ask you to prove your identity by sending copies of personal documents such as your passport, driving licence, bills or pay slips.

❌ Anyone from the NHS visiting your home will have an NHS ID card – please ask to see it.


Please be vigilant against fraud. Don't fall for the scams. Visit the CCG website for more information:
