Nova Scotia Health warns public about telephone scam

Nova Scotia Health is advising the public of a telephone scam related to the in-home COVID-19 vaccination program. The caller fraudulently claimed to be from Nova Scotia Health's continuing care program and asked for financial information.

Nova Scotia Health does not ask for banking, financial or other sensitive information such as social insurance numbers when calling to book an in-home vaccination appointment. 

If you have registered for the in-home vaccination program and have received, or receive a telephone call that claims to be from Nova Scotia Health's Continuing Care program requesting that you provide this type of information, please hang up and contact 1-800-225-7225.
