GCPH Warns Residents of Scammers Posing as Public Health Officials, Sharing Information on Vaccine Availability
Greene County Public Health officials have been alerted to the possibility of people fraudulently contacting residents by phone, text or email posing as public health officials and sharing information on the vaccine or other topics related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This information is to ensure that our residents get the official information from our agency and are not scammed.
The only place to register for a clinic provided by Greene County Public Health is on our website at www.gcph.info
Once on our site, you can click the center blue box that states: Click This Box to go to the COVID-19 Vaccine Sign-Up Page. Read the information very carefully and then click the link to fill out the form. Onc could take several weeks or even longer, pending vaccine availability, before you receive a call. As a federal asset, the COVID-19 vaccine is free to the public, however, we will attempt to bill your insurance for administration of the vaccine. There is no fee for you and you will not receive a bill.
There are other vaccine providers in Greene County. There is no affiliation between Greene County Public Health and the other providers. Please visit vaccine.coronavirus.ohio.gov for the list of other providers which can be sorted by county. You are encouraged to get vaccinated in your home county as vaccine allotment to the counties is based on population. Pending vaccine availability, we are running clinics on Wednesdays from 10am – 3pm and Thursdays from 11am-5:30pm at the Russ Research Center, 2730 Indian Ripple Road in Beavercreek.
In addition, to avoid loss of personal information, we encourage you not to share a picture of your vaccination card on social media as it does contain personal information.
