“Warning of vaccine scam phone calls
Scammers are using the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine to try to con people out of money, a council has warned.
Wirral Council told people to be on their guard after residents of New Ferry were prompted to book non-existent “vaccine appointments” in a recorded phone message.
Those receiving the calls are then asked to confirm by pressing a button on their phone – which results in them being billed by their provider.
Elderly people have been targeted by the calls, the council said.”
COVID-19 Surgery Update
For any queries including booking an appointment, please call the surgery on 0208 985 2249
