- The BBB said scammers can use the information on the card for ID theft and to create fake cards, which could later be sold to people.
- “Unfortunately, your card has your full name and birthday on it, as well as information about where you got your vaccine. If your social media privacy settings aren’t set high, you may be giving valuable information away for anyone to use,” the BBB said in a statement.
Dr. Kelly Moore, associate director of the Immunization Action Coalition, told CNN the card will help people know when they need to get their next shot since both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines require two shots.
- “Everyone will be issued a written card that they can put in their wallet that will tell them what they had and when their next dose is due,” Moore said. “Let’s do the simple, easy thing first. Everyone’s going to get that.”
