A scam that targets a vaccination for the new coronavirus, COVID-19, is going around in Fort Madison, Iowa.

Police took to Facebook on Thursday to say the caller contacts an elderly person to inform them their COVID-19 vaccination is read. All the caller needs is payment for the vaccination.

Police are asking those to contact their elderly parents, grandparents and others who may be susceptible to the scam to warn them.
