DEFENDERS: BBB advises not to share coronavirus vaccine card on social media

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

The Better Business Bureau is advising people to not share their coronavirus vaccination card on social media.

The BBB said it can increase your risk of identity theft and other scams.

When posting the photo on social media scammers are able to see your full name, birthday and where you got your vaccine.

The BBB reports it's already happened in Great Britain when scammers were caught selling fake vaccination cards on eBay and TikTok.

If you still want to post about your vaccine, the BBB says to instead share a photo of your vaccine sticker or set a frame around your profile picture. Another thing to consider when posting, review your security settings to make sure it's set either private or public.
