Fake NHS text message

A fake NHS text message telling people they are eligible to apply for the COVID-19 vaccine is being circulated.

The link in the text takes recipients to a fake NHS website that asks for personal details and mentions charging for the vaccination. This is a scam, and you should not provide any details.

The COVID-19 vaccination is free, via the NHS, for people in priority groups, who will be contacted by their GP or health provider when it is their turn.

If you or anyone else has been affected by this fraud or any other scam, please report it to Action Fraud online or call 0300 123 2040. You can also let our Trading Standards team know by emailing tradingstandards@royalgreenwich.gov.uk.
