The NHS is issuing a fresh warning to residents to be on their guard against fraudulent messages as new scams are being sent to patients regarding the Covid-19 vaccination. The NHS has this advice for patients:
•An official NHS text message will include details of your GP practice. It will also include details of the local vaccination service and its location.
•Scam text messages and emails are not including local information such as your GP practice details or where you are invited to attend.
•The COVID-19 vaccination is only available by the NHS and it is free – you will never be asked to pay for it or give your bank details.
