Better Business Bureau warning people who get vaccine not to post card on social media – WIVB.com – News 4

If you get the shot, do not post a photo of your vaccine card onto social media.

Everyone who gets the first dose gets the card and is asked to bring it to their second appointment.

The Better Business Bureau says a lot of people have been posting photos of the card on social media as a way to show pride for getting vaccinated or to promote others to get the shot, but the Communications Director for the BBB in our area, Melanie McGovern, says it’s not a good idea.

This is also a good time to check the security settings on your social media accounts, to make sure you’re as private as possible.

She also suggests going through your friends list, to eliminate anyone you don’t know.
