Covid Scams
As the COVID vaccination programme is rolled out, please be aware that some scams are circulating by phone, text and email.  Please do not click on any links they contain.  They will lead you to a very convincing page, but at the end will ask you to pay for the vaccine.  The Government vaccination programme is free and you cannot jump the queue by paying for it.  Those who are eligible for the vaccine first will receive a letter and/or an email with an invitation to ring for an appointment.
