Enfield Police Department

An internet safety reminder from the Enfield Police Department! After receiving your COVID vaccine, sharing a photo of your vaccination card on social media is not recommended, as it increases your chances of being a victim of identity theft.  These cards contain your name, date of birth, and other sensitive information that potentially allows for your vital information to be stolen, or even for your card to be duplicated and printed out, allowing a scammer to use your card.
