NHS Digital Passport
There have been reports of fake NHS email and text messages requesting that you can apply for a coronavirus ‘Digital Passport’, allowing you to prove your vaccination status and travel safely without the need for self-isolation. This email takes you to a convincing looking but fake NHS website and asks for your personal and payment details for a small ‘admin fee’.
This phishing email was reported via the NCSC’s Suspicious Email Reporting Service and they were able to take the scam website down after just 27 minutes from the time of reporting to them.
However, these emails will likely reappear so please continue to report any suspicious emails to NCSC by forwarding emails to [email protected]
You can manage your vaccination appointments and receive a confirmation of your vaccination status on the NHS Inform Scotland website. You can request a printed copy of your vaccination status online or by calling the COVID-9 Status Helpline.
