Don’t post photos of COVID-19 vaccine cards online, says USAGov

Advisory from USAGov:

Sharing a picture of your COVID-19 vaccine card on social media could put you at risk for identity theft. Your vaccine card has sensitive personally identifiable information (PII) and can contain information like your:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Patient number
  • Insurance information
  • Location where you received the vaccine. 

By posting images of this document to your accounts, you are sharing sensitive data that scammers can use to commit fraud.
