HAYS, Kan. (KSNW) – The Ellis County Health Department has been made aware of a scam involving the COVID-19 vaccine.

The department said the caller is not from them, and that they will call only to confirm your appointment.

The department said that they will never ask for personal information. If you question whether it is really from ECHD or not, please do not give any information, hang up, and call our office. The number is (785) 628-9440.
