NHS E-Referral Service Notification Scam - Coronavirus Vaccination

NHS E-Referral Service Notification Scam - Coronavirus Vaccination

The fake NHS notification email below, which claims the government is performing selective coronavirus vaccination on the basis of family genetics and medical history, is a scam. The fake email will ask recipients to confirm or reject whether they would like to take the coronavirus vaccination. If the recipients click the "Accept" link (do not do this), they will be taken to a phishing website where they will be asked for personal, credit card, and other financial information. If the requested information is submitted, it will be sent to the scammers who will use it fraudulently.
