OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma City-County Health Department officials are encouraging community members to be alert to scams related to COVID-19 vaccinations.
The scam aims to dupe people into paying for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. But the reality is that COVID-19 vaccinations are free.
“OCCD and other public health providers will never ask someone for a credit card to get a vaccine appointment,” an OCCHD news release states.
Anyone who has a question about a phone call they received regarding a vaccine or being vaccinated is asked to call OCCHD at (405) 425-4489 to verify the legitimacy of the call.
