COVID-19 vaccine scam

24 Feb 2021
Scammers will use any opportunity to try to trick and manipulate people into giving out their personal or financial details, especially through email and SMS scams. CERT NZ is working to put a stop to COVID-19 vaccine scam campaigns and ensure the safe roll out of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Remember, the COVID-19 vaccine is free.

At no point will you be asked to pay for the vaccine, or pay for your place in the queue. If you are, it’s likely a scam. The best way you can help us stop these scams is report them to us.

Report it

Help certnz stop these campaigns. If you have experience or are aware of a COVID-19 vaccine related scam, please email us with all the details you have through the link below. If possible, please:

  • Forward the original email, including any attachments.
  • Include any further details you're aware of regarding the scam.

Once you have done this, you can block the sender and delete the email from your system. We will come back to you with further advice.
