University of Iowa Health Care warns about vaccine-schedule scam

Local News

University of Iowa Health Care has learned about a scam in which the caller pretends to be calling on behalf of University of Iowa Health Care to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination.

The caller then asks for a Social Security number and credit card number to cover “administrative fees,” a news release says.

The health care group never will ask for this information to schedule a vaccination. Individuals who receive this call should hang up immediately, the news release says.
