Bethel warns of scam vaccine appointment calls

Bethel officials are warning residents to be aware of scams circulating in town related to the COVID-19 vaccine.  First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker says he was made aware that some residents received calls over the weekend from someone supposedly booking COVID-19 vaccine appointments for the town, who asked for personal financial information like social security and credit card numbers.  Knickerbocker says that information is not needed to be vaccinated.  There is no charge for the shot, which is being provided by the federal government free of charge to individuals.  Knickerbocker added that the town is not recording social security numbers.  Anyone receiving such a call is asked to hang up and call police on the non-emergency line to report it.
