FRAUD SURROUNDING COVID-19 IS INCREASING

January 5, 2021

Scammers rapidly alter their tactics and adapt their schemes to the changing landscape, and we anticipate that they will leverage the COVID-19 vaccine to prey on unsuspecting beneficiaries. Be vigilant and protect yourself from potential fraud concerning COVID-19 vaccines and treatments. Here are things you need to know about the COVID-19 vaccine: • You likely will not need to pay anything out-of-pocket to get the vaccine during this public health emergency.
• You cannot pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine.
• You cannot pay to get early access to the vaccine.
• You will not be solicited door to door to receive the vaccine.
• No one from Medicare or the Health Department with contact you.
• No one from a vaccine distribution site or health care payer, like a private insurance company, will call you asking for your Medicare number, Social Security number, or your credit card or bank account information to sign you up to get the vaccine.

There are very limited places to receive the Covid-19 vaccination. You will have to call one of the following pharmacies and be placed on their waiting list.

Pharmacies will be making patients show proof of age with an ID (MUST BE 70 OR OLDER FOR PHASE 1A) or an ID badge showing they’re employed at a health center that qualifies them for the vaccine next priority group, which includes people 70 and older, end stage renal disease facility personnel and patients, ambulatory and outpatient health care workers, home agency patients and workers and schools of allied health students, residents and staff.

Here is a list of pharmacies that we know of right now that will be receiving/received the much sought-after vaccination:

COVID-19 VACCINE: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

January 5, 2021

The vaccine is likely to become more widely available for the general population in late spring/summer 2021. When this happens, having a large portion of the population vaccinated is our best shot at a return to some form of normalcy. Based on conversations with our federal partners, we are encouraged that Louisiana will receive enough doses to vaccinate everyone who wants a shot.
