COVID-19 VACCINES ARE NOT SOLD
They are FREE!
If you come across a website offering to sell COVID-19 vaccine, it is a fraud. COVID-19 vaccines are never sold or exchanged online.
Here’s what you should know:
- The Virginia Department of Health (VHD) will not ask for money for a COVID-19 vaccine and will not send the vaccine.
- If you are being asked to pay for the vaccine or are being asked to pay to get registered on a waitlist, this is a scam.
- If you get an email invitation for an appointment, but it demands money, this is a scam.
- If you get an advertisement by email, online or text that says for payment, get vaccine doses shipped to you, this is a scam.
- Scam artists search for ways to get people to handing over their personal information. People are taking selfies with their vaccination cards and posting to social media as they are excited to get the vaccine. The problem is the vaccination card has personal information on it, like birth dates. This is an invitation for identity theft.
If you think you are being scammed, call the Virginia Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Section at (800) 552-9963.
