We have been made aware of fake NHS text messages circulating, informing the public that they’re eligible for a Covid-19 vaccine.

The scam message reads “We have identified that you are eligible to apply for your vaccine” which prompts you to click on a link to find out more and to “apply” for the vaccine.

The link directs you to a convincing fake NHS website, where fraudsters can coerce you to divulge personal or financial details.

Any texts or emails containing URLs should always be treated with caution and we’d urge for members of the public to avoid clicking links in unsolicited texts or emails.

Please share this warning with friends, families, neighbours and colleagues so we can prevent anyone from falling victim to scams.
