Scammers are out there trying to take advantage of people desperate to get a COVID vaccination. The State Health Department’s Kris Ehresmann cautions…

“We know there is a lot of demand for vaccine right now, so claims that you can get vaccines faster sound great, but it’s important to be careful because these could be attempts to gain access to your personal information.”

Ehresmann says if someone calls you and asks for your credit card, bank account or social security number–that’s a scam. She says public health and healthcare providers will not call you and ask for that information.
