Avoid COVID-19 Vaccine Scams

Avoid COVID-19 Vaccine Scams

MHCS has been notified by Medicare of potential scams related to the COVID-19 vaccine. The cost of the COVID-19 vaccine is covered as part of your Medicare benefit. Never share your Medicare Number or pay for access to the vaccine.

Here's what you need to know:

  • You can't pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine.
  • You can't pay to get early access to the vaccine.
  • Don't share your personal or financial information with anyone who calls, texts, or emails  you promising access to the vaccine for a fee.

If you come across a COVID-19 vaccine scam, report it to the Federal Trade Commission or contact Medicare at 1-800-633-4227. Go to CDC.gov for information on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Add your name to the vaccination list.
