Covid digital passport scam

Published on 15 October 2021 06:08 PM

Be aware of a Covid Vaccine Passport scam email going around that purports to be from the NHS and informs recipients that they can apply for their “Digital Coronavirus Passports”.

Clicking on the link within the email, takes you to a convincing but fake NHS website that asks for personal and payment details (for an admin fee)

The website has since been taken down, but similar emails and websites may appear .

And just to reiterate, your vaccination status is obtained FREE through the NHS App, website or by calling the NHS on 119.

More information can be found on the gov.uk website;
