Vaccine Fraud Warning

D4_D4Logo

Criminals have found it is much easier to sit on their rear and do scams and fraud.  It seems the Covid-19 vaccine is just one of the most recent targets. 

Any attempt to get you or a loved one to purchase early or select access to the vaccine is a scam.  Just like the other popular scams where a caller urges you to buy pre-paid or gift cards to keep you out of jail or to help you with your computer they are all scams.  We see reports daily where someone falls for these very convincing criminals.  I believe for several reasons this is very underreported. 

The only way I know right now to get an appointment for the Covid vaccine in our area is to contact the District 4 office of the GA Dept of Public Health.  The only phone number is 1-800-847-4262. I am hearing this is not easy.  There is one phone number for everyone to call.  Their advice is to keep calling over and over until you get through.  The web site will define who can get the vaccine now (Phase 1a). 

You may also be able to ask your Primary Care Physician about possible locations and rumor is some pharmacies and immediate care providers will have some availability. 

I have included a link to the website for District 4 Public Health. https://www.district4health.org/
