DPHSS Reminds Community to Safeguard COVID-19 Vaccination Card
Scammers are using the COVID-19 pandemic to try to steal your personal information. Keep your vaccination card safe. Do not share a photo of your COVID-19 vaccination card online or on social media. Scammers can use content you post, like your date of birth, health care details, or other personal information to steal your identity. You should get a COVID-19 vaccination card at your first vaccine appointment. If you did not, contact the provider site where you got vaccinated or DPHSS to find out how to get a card. If someone contacts you to buy or sell a vaccination card, it is likely a scam.

For more information about safeguarding your COVID-19 vaccination card, contact the DPHSS Guam Medicare Assistance Program within the Division of Senior Citizens by phone at 735-7421/7415, or via email at Biba.SeniorCitizens@dphss.guam.gov.

For the latest information on COVID-19, visit dphss.guam.gov or guamrecovery.com. For inquiries on COVID-19, contact 311 through a local number, or call the Joint Information Center at (671) 478-0208/09/10.
