COVID-19 Scams Circulating Around Lambton County

Point Edward, ON – Lambton Public Health (LPH) would like to remind the public to stay vigilant and be aware of a few COVID-19 vaccine scams that are currently making their way around Lambton County.

“Since the opening of our local Call Centre and online COVID-19 pre-registration for those 90 years of age and older yesterday, we’ve had several reports of seniors being contacted,” said Donna Schmidtmeyer, Supervisor – Health Promotion. “The public should know that Lambton Public Health does not charge a fee to pre-register for the vaccine, nor do we charge a fee for the vaccine itself. We will not ask you for any financial information whatsoever. And, unless you have called LPH to pre-register for the vaccine directly or signed up for the pre-registration using our online platform, no one should contact you and ask for any personal information.”

Please check the source of the COVID-19 information you’re receiving. If you’re unsure or your gut is telling you something is off, it probably is. Call Lambton Public Health at 519-383-8331 for information.
