Scammers are contacting elderly people claiming they can arrange COVID vaccines for a fee. The NHS is the only organisation that has access to the vaccine and will never ask for payment.

If you are contacted, please do not engage with the fraudsters, the NHS is currently only contacting eligible people by phone. If you are asked for money it is not a genuine call.

If you believe you have been a victim of fraud please report to 0300 123 2040.

Don’t contact the NHS about the vaccine – they will contact you.
