(WFXR) — Roanoke City and Alleghany Health District officials are urging residents to be mindful of scams that are circulating surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine.
According to health officials, they have received reports from residents who have received emails from companies saying they will help with vaccine appointments.
The Roanoke City and Alleghany Health District says this is not true.
The only contact citizens should get, who live in the district, will come from the Roanoke City Alleghany Health Districts, PrepMod or VAMS registration services.
In addition, health officials offered more tips for spotting vaccine scams:
- Do not pay out of pocket for the vaccine
- Do not pay to put your name on a priority list
- Do not pay to get early access to the vaccine
- Remember that vaccines are not solicited door-to-door
