Beware COVID-19 virus vaccination-for-fee scam

By Rob Vogt, Local Press Writer
Alberta Health Services is asking everyone to beware of a phone scam offering COVID-19 vaccinations for a fee.
On Feb. 3, Alberta Health Services tweeted they were receiving reports of a phone scam where Albertans over the age of 75 were told they could book their COVID-19 immunization for a fee.
Alberta Health Services emphasized they will never ask for payment for COVID-19 immunization.
They urge anyone receiving this type of call to please hang up immediately and report it to the non-emergency line for local law enforcement.
