Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are being warned of fraudulent telephone calls involving COVID-19 vaccination.
The Department of Health and Community Services says it has received reports of callers asking people to pay for their COVID-19 pre-registration and vaccination.
"The public should know that this is a scam. Pre-registration and vaccination is free. Public Health would not make these telephone calls or leave such messages."
Anyone who receives a suspicious telephone call or message should immediately report it to the nearest police detachment.
