- Now on to a consumer alert. AARP and the Better Business Bureau say scammers are taking advantage of seniors seeking COVID vaccines.

CLAIRE ROSENZWEIG: You can't believe anybody who's just going to call you and tell you that they want your information so they can put you on a list or give you the vaccine.

- So to protect your personal information, experts say you should verify all vaccine offers with a trusted source, such as a government website, your doctor, or pharmacist. Be skeptical of any offers that sound too good to be true. Guard your government-issued numbers. Don't give your Social Security number, Medicare ID, health plan, or banking information to anyone you don't trust. And don't post pictures of your vax card on social media.
