COVID-19 Vaccine Scams

Image may contain: one or more people

Be on the lookout for these COVID19 vaccine scams:
✓ You do not pay out-of-pocket to get the vaccine.
✓ Beware of marketers offering to sell or ship doses of the vaccine for payment.
✓ You cannot pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine early.
✓ No one from Medicare or your health department will contact you without you indicating interest/scheduling an appointment first.
✓ Beware of providers offering other products, treatments or medicines to prevent the coronavirus. Always call your physician first to check the validity of such products.
✓ No one from a vaccine distribution site or health care organization will call and ask for your Medicare number, social security number, or banking information to sign you up for a vaccine.

If you believe you have been the victim of COVID19 fraud, immediately report it: Health and Human Services 1.800.444.8477 or

Important Vaccine Information Update!

Virginia Department of Health Archives - The River 95.3

The Three Rivers Health District has launched a new website for members of the public to indicate their interest in receiving a COVID-19 vaccination during Phase 1b. Please be aware the form DOES NOT automatically schedule an appointment. Three Rivers Health District staff will reach out to you with more information as vaccination clinics are scheduled. Expect major delays based on high demand and severely limited vaccine supply.
