The NHS will never ask for a person’s banking information so please do not provide as it will be a scam.  If the NHS contacts you for a vaccine, they will not ask for any kind of financial or banking information.

If you are unsure if a text is genuine, don't hand over your personal details. You can read more advice in the following scam advice leaflet.
