(OPEN):
VACCINES FOR "COVID-19" ARE STARTING TO ROLL OUT, ACROSS THE COUNTRY--AND THROUGHOUT ALABAMA.  UNFORTUNATELY, SCAMMERS ARE TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO JAMIE HARDING, OF "A-A-R-P ALABAMA"...

(HARDING):
"
SCAMMERS ARE USING TELEMARKETING, TEXT-MESSAGES, SOCIAL MEDIA, AND EVEN DOOR-TO-DOOR VISITS, TO PERPETRATE VACCINE-RELATED SCAMS.  DON'T RESPOND TO ANY SOLICITATIONS ABOUT THE VACCINES--OR ABOUT OFFERS TO 'BUY' A SPOT ON A PRIORITY-LIST.  ALSO, NO-ONE FROM EITHER MEDICARE OR AN INSURANCE-COMPANY WILL ASK FOR YOUR 'SOCIAL SECURITY'-NUMBER, OR CREDIT-CARD INFORMATION, ON THE PHONE; ANYONE WHO REQUESTS THAT IS A SCAMMER.  VACCINE-DOSES WERE PURCHASED WITH TAXPAYER-MONEY--AND WILL BE PROVIDED TO AMERICANS AT NO COST.  HOWEVER, PROVIDERS MAY CHARGE AN ADMINISTRATION-FEE--AND HAVE THAT FEE REIMBURSED BY INSURANCE-COMPANIES.  THERE'S ALSO A MEANS OF REIMBURSEMENT FOR UNINSURED PATIENTS.  FINALLY, IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER--AND WHEN--YOU SHOULD RECEIVE A VACCINE, YOU SHOULD ONLY GET THAT INFORMATION FROM YOUR PHYSICIAN, OR ANOTHER TRUSTED HEALTHCARE-RESOURCE."

(CLOSE):
TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ALABAMA'S ROLLOUT-PLANS, HARDING RECOMMENDS CALLING YOUR COUNTY HEALTH-DEPARTMENT--OR VISITING "ALABAMA-PUBLIC-HEALTH"-DOT-GOV.
