Scammers are once again taking advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic...

The Scam

Scammers are calling individuals to get them "scheduled" for their vaccine and requesting personal information, including financial info. 

What You Need to Know

You will NOT receive a phone call about getting scheduled for your vaccine at this point in time, unless you've previously registered with your local health department, hospital, or pharmacy. Real health officials will never request sensitive information, for example social security or credit card numbers. Avoid sharing personal information over the phone. If a call seems suspicious, hang up. Allow calls from unrecognized numbers to go to voicemail. Scammers rarely leave messages.

Sources of Vaccine

The Kalamazoo County Health Department and local hospitals are currently focusing on frontline/healthcare workers and ages 65+. Hospitals are scheduling online via their chosen app (for example, MyChart) or via a verified source for those without online access. The next group to be vaccinated will be high risk individuals ages 50+.
