Here are a few links for educational purposes on how to beat vaccine scams in our area.

Here is a story from Lifespan of Greater Rochester: "Several older adults in the Rochester area were called. The caller said for a small price they could get them an appointment to be vaccinated. No hassle. No worries. The caller “gave them an appointment” and told them to go to the State run vaccination site in Rochester. When they arrived, they didn’t have an appointment. Lost $100. We have had people calling in tears."

This is what we want to avoid! Please be cautious and careful when setting up your COVID-19 vaccine.
