Medicare covers the COVID-19 vaccine,
so there will be no cost to you. If anyone asks you to share your Medicare Number or pay for access to the vaccine, you can bet it’s a scam.
Here’s what to know:
• You can’t pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine.
• You can’t pay to get early access to a vaccine.
• Don’t share your personal or financial information if someone calls, texts, or emails you promising access to the vaccine for a fee.
If you come across a COVID-19 vaccine scam, report it to the Federal Trade Commission
or call MEDICARE at 1-800-MEDICARE. And check out CDC.gov
for trustworthy information on the COVID-19 vaccine.
