NHS Vaccine Text Message Scam

Please watch out for a text message claiming to be from the NHS, which says you are eligible to apply for a vaccine and includes a link asking you to click through to apply. 

The link takes you to a fake NHS website and asks you for payment and other personal details.

Please be vigilant, and remember that the NHS will never ask for payment for the vaccine. 

If you receive this message please do not respond or click the link. You can report any suspect texts or emails to Action Fraud through their website or by calling 0300 123 2040.

Please share this warning with elderly and vulnerable friends and family members so we can prevent as many people as possible from falling victim to this scam.
