(NBC) — As millions of Americans are getting COVID1-9 vaccinations across the nation, some are buying vaccine cards online.

The Department of Health and Human Services and the FBI are investigating the growing trend.

Currently, there is no federal system to authenticate the CDC vaccination cards, which makes it easy for scammers to make them.

Experts say a digital verification or QR code may roll out eventually. They are also saying not to take a selfie or post the card online.

Since people are using the social media posts of the vaccine cards to take people’s personal information.

To report suspicious activity involving a face vaccination record car, call 1-800-HHS-TIPS.
