Watch Out for COVID-19 Vaccine Scams!

Posted on 01/27/2021

The rollout of COVID-19 vaccinations are underway but con artists are working to confuse the public about the vaccines. Don’t be fooled!

VACCINES ARE FREE 

Getting vaccinated shouldn't cost anything. The federal government pre-purchased hundreds of millions of doses, and state health officials have a plan to ensure rapid and equitable delivery of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Scammers may reach out with robocalls, emails, texts, or social media ads pretending to be with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) or your local health department. They may ask for money or personal information in order to get your dose. Do not get scammed: government officials will never ask for money or sensitive information by phone.

LOCALS! Let's Save Native Songbirds

Thanks to our friends at SHPOA who posted this today in their Daily Fodder:

EMPTY YOUR FEEDERS AND WATERERS FOR A FEW WEEKS!

There is an outbreak of Salmonellosis in pine siskins (a type of small finch, brown with a little yellow) and goldfinches that California Department. Of Fish and Wildlife has been monitoring during the last couple of weeks. They document this infection periodically in these species when they get an irruption of pine siskins during winter and this seems to be one of those winters.

Salmonellosis is a bacterial infection spread through food and water contaminated with feces from an infected bird. Pine siskins and goldfinches are especially susceptible to this infection when visiting bird feeders. While this disease is most often reported in pine siskins in winter, other species may also develop infection when in close contact with infected pine siskins. Sick birds often act lethargic with ruffled or puffed up feathers and die relatively quickly once infected. These outbreaks always involve bird feeders, so it’s recommended that all sources of artificial food and water are removed for at least 3-4 weeks to hopefully end the current disease outbreak. However, infection may re-emerge in the spring as pine siskins migrate north, back to their breeding grounds.
