According to municipal sources, there are several people in the municipality who have informed the authorities that they are receiving phone calls offering vaccination at their homes and that, in addition, they will give them masks and a pulse oximeter (A tiny fingertip device can give you valuable information about your health during a bout of Covid-19 or any respiratory illness.) in exchange for 10 euros.

Apparently, the scam attempt is mainly aimed at seniors or people who live alone.

The Health Centre wishes to emphasise that vaccination is not done at home “except for very specific cases of people with serious mobility problems.”

They have also stressed that it is a scam and possibly “a way to enter properties belonging to vulnerable people with the intention of theft.”
