River Ward City Councillor Riley Brockington is raising awareness about potential scammers calling residents and gaining access to personal information by pretending to set up a COVID-19 vaccination appointment for their victim.
Warning— Riley Brockington (@RiverWardRiley) April 8, 2021
Residents need to protect their privacy after reports of unauthorized callers offering COVID vaccination appts.
The callers ask for personal ID & pretend to arrange appointments/tests.
Ottawa Public Health will not call you directly, unless you have asked for a call back.
The councillor explains in a tweet on Thursday, April 8, that Ottawa Public Health is not calling residents about vaccinations, unless a resident asks to be called back.
Brockington is urging residents to protect their privacy.
