Stop Posting Your COVID Vaccinations Form on Social Media
Many of us are ecstatic about getting our COVID-19 vaccinations, some are getting their first while others have received both. Regardless of how many doses you've had, stop sharing your COVID vaccination form on social media. This falls along the same line as that brief tend where people were sharing their high school senior photos as some weird way of "showing support" for the class of 2020. Most high school seniors missed out on the standard graduation ceremony due to the coronavirus pandemic. The warning to stop sharing high school senior photos with your school information was advised by the Better Business Bureau. This new advisory comes from a fraud expert, according to WREX, and not a government agency.
The risk is someone stilling the information written or printed on your COVID-19 vaccination form and making their own counterfeit form. Like your authentic form, the fake form could be used for international travel and more. In fact, counterfeit forms are already being sold online for serious cash.
Because the face of a filled out card contains information that an identity thief can use against the cardholder. Additionally, it gives those wishing to forge a counterfeit blank card the information that they would need to make the card appear legitimate, said William Kresse, national fraud expert who goes by Dr. Fraud.
WREX's article suggests sharing a photo of the "I got vaccinated" sticker (which I never got.) or show off the bandaid covering your Fauci ouchie.
