Don’t Post Photos of Vaccine Cards Online, BBB Warns

As joyous as getting the coronavirus vaccination may be after spending months fear of the pandemic, don’t document the occasion by posting photos of vaccine cards on social media, the Better Business Bureau warns.

“Unfortunately, your card has your full name and birthday on it, as well as information about where you got your vaccine,” the private consumer-advocacy nonprofit said in a statement. “If your social media privacy isn’t high, you may be giving valuable information away for anyone to use.”

The BBB said scammers in Great Britain are already using information found on social media to create fake vaccination cards to sell on eBay and TikTok.

The organization advises people who want to share the news to post a picture of the sticker received upon vaccination or set a frame around their Facebook profile picture.
