The Health Service Executive has urged people to be aware of a text scam claiming to offer appointments for a Covid-19 vaccination.
The text messages include a link to pre-book an appointment, but ask for credit or debit card details to complete the booking.
Covid-19 vaccinations are free and the HSE said these texts should be ignored.
In a statement, the HSE said: You will never be asked for your bank details or to pay for a vaccine by a member of HSE vaccination staff.
"If you are concerned or suspicious about any contact you have received regarding Covid-19 vaccinations, please call HSELive on 1800 700 700 and contact your local gardaí."
People can register for a vaccine through hse.ie, and a text message providing details of the appointment will sent.
This message will include two links - one on the vaccine information leaflet and the second to give consent online for the vaccine.
