Covid vaccination certificate scam

Thank you to the patient who alerted us to a phone call she received today (10 June 2021) from an 020 phone number, claiming to be from the NHS and offering to send her a covid vaccine certificate.  The caller asked the patient whether she had received her covid vaccinations, and if so how many doses. She then proceeded to ask for the patient’s e-mail address so she could be sent her vaccination certificate. We believe this to be a scam.

If you’re planning to travel abroad, you may need to show proof that you’re vaccinated against coronavirus (COVID-19). You need to request proof of vaccination status from the NHS – you can find out more by visiting Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination status for travelling abroad – NHS (www.nhs.uk)
