Coronavirus Vaccines Rollout and Reminder of Scams

Vaccine and testing programmes are being rolled out, and we’re pleased that many of our readers will already have been given their first vaccines; we hope those are going well!

The NHS will let you know when it’s your turn to have the vaccine and it’s important not to contact the NHS for a vaccination before you are invited.

Remember, the NHS will NEVER:

  • ask for your bank account or card details
  • ask for your PIN or banking passwords
  • arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine
  • ask for documentation to prove your identity, such as a passport or utility bills

More information on the rollout of vaccines across Birmingham can be seen in our article here, including information on avoiding vaccine scams. And see a message from the NHS here.
