We have been made aware that members of the Public have today been receiving calls and emails from scammers about making Covid vaccination appointments.
The correct process is:-
You will initially only get a letter about your vaccination.
You will then ring 111 to make an appointment there and then OR after your call they will ring you back, this could take a few days.
Any unexpected calls about vaccinations could very well be from scammers. If you have had a letter but are not sure about the call put the phone down and ring 111. Emails will be a scam. You would never be asked to give bank details.
Only ring 111 if you have had a letter.
Forward scam emails to firstname.lastname@example.org the IOM Government suspicious email service.
Report scam calls via the IOM Government cyber reporting service, details about both services in the below link. This will help us build a picture of how widespread the problem is.
*If you look after any people likely to fall for this scam please speak to them.*
