Watch for fake vaccine scam calls

Posted on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at 4:34 pm

The Audrain County Health Department (ACHD) has been made aware of an outside company, not affiliated with ACHD, that has been calling area residents asking them to sign up to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
In addition, the callers are then asking for the residents’ political affiliation and other questions of a personal nature.
“This company has no affiliation with ACHD and we would never ask questions of a personal nature outside of your medical care if we were to contact you.”
ACHD says to end the call as quickly as possible and do not give out any information to these callers. ACHD has alerted the proper authorities of this fraudulent activity.
However, please be aware that ACHD, or its call center, may return your call to them and ask for your contact information and availability.
