Beware of COVID-19 Vaccine Scams:
We have received several phone calls from North Shore residents who have paid or wish to pay to get on NSSC’s waiting list for the vaccine. Please note NSSC has no such waiting list, and no one should pay to get on a list to get the vaccine or pay for the vaccine itself. If NSSC becomes a vaccine site, we will communicate to the public through e-blasts such as this, our website and our social media channels.
Protect Yourself: Avoid Vaccine Scams
It's a scam if:
- You are asked to pay to put your name on a vaccine waiting list
- You are asked to pay to get the vaccine
If you believe you are the victim of COVID-19 fraud, immediately report it to:
- Northfield Police Department: 847.446.2131 or your local Police Department
