Benton County Warns Of New Vaccine Scam


Benton County officials are warning of a scam related to vaccine clinics at Reser Stadium.

Individuals who got vaccine shots at the stadium have received emails asking them to complete a feedback survey. The email says people who complete the survey are eligible for a 90-dollar gift card. Benton County says it is not sending out these surveys and would never ask for bank or credit card information to send money. Anyone who receives an email like this is asked to *not click on any links in the email and report the scam to the Benton County Sheriff: 541-766-6858.

Benton County is holding another mass vax event at Reser Stadium this weekend. More details here.
