Scams related to the coronavirus vaccine are increasing. Be careful not to fall victim to these scams!
The vaccine is for free!
If someone asks for money to administer the vaccine, don’t accept it!
Beware of phone calls asking for your personal details
Both the federal government, city halls, local and provincial governments will never call or send e-mails saying “You need to get the vaccine” and ask for your personal information and bank account information. If someone asks you for your personal information and bank account information, never respond.
If you receive this type of message and find it strange or unsure, consult with the authorities.
