Vaccine Scams

The Parish Council have been contacted by Detective Inspector Thompson, Warwickshire Police Intelligence Unit, in respect of a developing national trend:

“Nationally there have been reports of individuals targeting the elderly and administering fake vaccinations for a fee.

Regionally/Nationally we are also seeing fake emails being sent to the vulnerable and elderly purporting to be the NHS and asking them to click on a link to obtain vaccines.

They are then usually asked to provide a payment or bank details.

The NHS will never ask for payment or bank details from patients and I do believe the NHS send letters out for patients to book appointments for tests”.
