During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic make sure you are on your guard against scams.

Scammers often make contact by email, phone calls, text messages, social media posts and even calling at your door and may ask for money.

There have been reports of scams relating to the COVID-19 vaccine. In Wales COVID-19 vaccines will only be available through your NHS Local Health Board (LHB).

Remember:

  • The NHS will never ask you for your bank account or card details – the vaccine is free.
  • The NHS will never ask you for your PIN or banking password.
  • NHS staff will never arrive unannounced at your home to administer the COVID-19 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.

If you receive a call/text/email claiming to be a COVID-19 vaccine booking line asking for your bank details or for money this is a scam. Never give out your bank details over the phone or email to an unknown, unverified source.
