If you're among those who have been able to get your COVID-19 vaccine already, officials are warning you to not share your vaccination card online.
Pictures of the cards have been popping up frequently on social media. The problem is that they contain a lot of personal information, like your full name, birthday and where you got your shot.
Scammers can use all that information to make fake cards.
The Better Business Bureau says it's already seen phony cards up for sale in Great Britain and they expect the same thing to start happening in the U.S.
