In addition to that, scammers are even using your photo to their advantage by later contacting you while posing as a medical professional. Yes, scammers are now reportedly contacting those who had their first round of vaccinations and scheduling them for their final shot.
While posing as a medical professional, they are getting important information from you, like your social security number, while you think you are scheduling your final round of the vaccination.
