Better Business Bureau Warns Against Posting Vaccination Card Photos

The Better Business Bureau is warning people who receive COVID-19 inoculations about posting photos of their vaccination cards online.

The COVID-19 vaccination card, given to people after receiving their first of two shots, is used as proof when they return for their second inoculation.

Vaccination cards include a recipient’s full name and other information like date of birth, type of vaccine received, and date when the vaccination took place.

Some fraudsters are also using pictures of vaccination cards to create fake ones, and sell them online, according to the BBB.

The bureau advises people to post photos of their vaccine sticker, or to make their social media posts more private if they want to share the event.
