Scamtracker.org has received a number of reports from people who have received emails and messages claiming that they can purchase vaccines or medical products that will prevent or cure COVID-19. These claims are false, as there are no U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved vaccines or drugs to prevent COVID-19, and no approved vaccines, drugs, or products specifically for curing COVID-19 available for purchase online or in stores. The Department Of Justice recently filed action against a business claiming to sell World Health Organization vaccine kits in exchange for a shipping charge of $4.95.
