The following information was posted on Lambourn Surgery’s facebook page on 7 January 2021:
Please be aware there are a large number of scam messages around at the moment in relation to Covid testing and vaccinations. For the initial cohorts of patients for the COVID vaccination, (the over 80s and health and social care workers) we will be contacting eligible patients only by telephone. At no point will you be asked for any bank details or financial information, whether by telephone, or if we move to text for the later cohorts.
We have sent a text message out this morning to and identify patients of ours who are genuine health and social care workers in order that we can include them in the vaccination programme. This is not a scam, but you need only reply if you are working in a healthcare or social care role.
