Health Department Warns of COVID-19 Phone Scam

April 16th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

The Allegany County Health Department has become aware of a phone scam in which the caller states that they are calling regarding COVID-19 vaccination and then proceeds to ask for a social security number.   The health department has been making calls to schedule vaccination appointments, but we will never ask for your social security number.  If you receive a call about COVID vaccination and are asked for your social security number, please report it to local law enforcement.
