Three Ways to Avoid COVID-19 Scams

Start with your state or local health departments to find out how, when, and where to get a COVID-19 vaccine in your community. And to avoid a scam, know that:

  • You can't pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine. That's a scam.
  • You can't pay to get early access to the vaccine. That's a scam.
  • Nobody legit will call, text, or email about the vaccine and ask for your Social Security bank account, or credit card number. That's a scam.
