Devon and Cornwall Police have warned that the NHS will never ask you for payment details to access your Covid vaccination.

As the vaccination roll-out continues and the NHS starts sending text messages asking people to book their vaccine appointments, police are reminding people that the vaccine is free and the NHS will never ask you for payment details in order to book. 
 
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Remember, the NHS will never ask you for payment or banking details in order to receive the vaccine. If you receive an email, text message or phone call purporting to be from the NHS and you are asked to provide financial details, or pay for the vaccine, this is a scam."
