COVID Vaccine Scams

We are aware that people are being sent unsolicited text messages and emails related to the COVID vaccine as part of scams.

We are sending text invites to patients as well as phoning people. Our text messages look like the image below.

If the message is legitimate, it will never ask for:

  • Credit card details
  • Payment of any kind

It will ask for your date of birth only to verify you are the person who was sent the link.

If you have any doubts about the authenticity of an invite, please call the surgery reception on 0191 3746888
