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 tips.hhs.gov.
