Residents Are Warned Not To Share Photos

The Better Business Bureau is issuing a warning to area residents not to share a photo of vaccination cards on social media. The self-identifying information on it makes people vulnerable to identity theft and can help scammers create phony versions. The card has a vaccine recipient’s full name and birthday on it, as well as information about where they got their vaccine. If social media privacy settings aren’t set high, people may be giving valuable information away for anyone to use. Sharing personal information isn’t the only issue. Scammers in Great Britain were caught selling fake vaccination cards on eBay and TikTok, and Better Business Bureau officials said it is only a matter of time before similar cons come to the United States and Canada. Posting photos of a card can help provide scammers with the information they can use to create and sell phony ones. Those who must share vaccination news on social media are asked to share a vaccine sticker or use a profile frame instead.
