The PSNI is warning people of a phishing scam related to the Covid-19 vaccination programme in Northern Ireland.

The phishing text message scam circulating tells people that they are “eligible” for the vaccine.

The text that people are sent reads “we have identified that you are eligible to apply for your vaccine” and links to a convincing, but fake, NHS page which then asks for bank details.

The PSNI is advising people who may receive a text or email that asks you to click on a link or for you to provide information, such as your name, credit card or bank details, it is likely to be a scam.
