SCAM ALERT from Medicare.gov
After you get your COVID-19 vaccine, keep your vaccination card safe – scammers are using the COVID-19 pandemic to try to steal your personal information.
Don’t share a photo of your COVID-19 vaccination card online or on social media. Scammers can use content you post, like your date of birth, health care details, or other personal information to steal your identity.
If someone contacts you to buy or sell a vaccination card, it’s a scam.
If you suspect COVID-19 health care fraud call 800-447-8477.
