Fake Covid19 Vaccine Invitation Emails

⚠ WARNING ⚠

We’ve received reports this morning of fake emails inviting you to book your Covid19 vaccine by clicking a link which appears to redirect you to a FAKE page that looks very much like NHS pages.

Please report any suspicious emails by forwarding to report@phishing.gov.uk and any suspicious texts to 7726

Below is a screenshot of the scam email for info.

This second image is directly from the NHS England website regarding legitimate vaccine invites, and what to expect.
