You got your COVID-19 vaccine in West Virginia but now you can’t locate it. That’s okay, it’s easy to get a replacement.

If you lost your card and do not have a record of it, there are options for obtaining proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

If you received your vaccination at a pharmacy or private health care provider, they should be able to look up your records and make a new card.

To request proof of COVID-19 vaccination if you were vaccinated at a public site, such at the Wayne County Health Department, complete this form to receive your Immunization Clinic Record Card. Please be aware the CDC COVID-19 vaccination record card is not an official record and will be replaced with a record from the official state’s immunizations registry.

Many health care providers also have access to this registry, so your primary care physician’s office may also be able to look up the record of your immunization.

Did you experience damage from the late February flooding?  Then apply for FEMA Assistance.

 

If you suffered damage or losses from the Feb. 27 – March 4, 2021 flooding, you have less than six weeks left to register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for federal disaster assistance. The deadline to register is Monday, July 19, 2021.

 

Individual disaster assistance grants for homeowners and renters are available to eligible residents of Cabell, Kanawha, Mingo and Wayne counties.

Here is how to register:

FEMA grants do not have to be repaid. FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits.

You should register even if you have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but if you have losses insurance doesn’t cover, you may receive help from FEMA after your insurance claims are settled.

Don’t wait until the last minute. Apply by Monday, July 19, 2021.

For more information on West Virginia’s disaster recovery, visit www.fema.gov/disaster/4605. Learn more about Disaster Assistance at  www.disasterassistance.gov. For guidance about the Disaster Assistance application process at www.fema.gov/assistance/individual/program#apply.

There are three ways for residents of Cabell, Kanawha, Mingo and Wayne counties who experienced damage in the Feb. 27-March 4, 2021 flooding to apply for FEMA Assistance. Housing Assistance includes Rental Assistance, Lodging Expense Reimbursement and Home Repair Assistance. Applications will be accepted through July 19, 2021.

Online shopping has become more of a necessity lately rather than an occasional luxury. Naturally, this opens more opportunities for scammers to take advantage of the situation to fool consumers into giving out their personal information. This type of scheme also happens frequently during the holiday season.

How the Scam Works
A call, email or text from someone claiming to be a mail carrier or a parcel delivery service saying that they were unable to deliver a package to your home. If you don’t remember ordering anything that needs to be delivered, the caller may try to convince you the package is a gift from a friend or relative. The caller may sound friendly and professional, making the scam harder to spot. The email messages also look legitimate – containing official logos and using professional language.

However, things get suspicious quickly. The caller will ask you to verify personal information or give them your credit card information to reschedule the delivery. Email messages may ask you to click on a tracking link for your mystery package. When you click, you may download malware onto your computer that gives con artists access to any personal information and passwords. No matter the method of contact, the package doesn’t exist. Sharing your personal information puts you at risk for identity theft.

How to Avoid Package Delivery Scams

  • Be wary of unsolicited communications. Package delivery companies will never contact customers unsolicited via telephone call or text. Instead, depending on the carrier and if the customer signed up for notifications, an email may be sent within a secure online account.
  • Track all packages. Keep track of online purchases and expected deliveries. Request tracking numbers in anticipation of when they’ll arrive. This makes it difficult for scammers to fool  with the claim of a fake package delivery.
  • Never give personal information to strangers. Even when the caller is friendly, always use caution when asked for personal information. Hang up, look up the official customer service number, and directly contact the company to confirm their request. Whenever possible, use the customer service contact information or chat function within the account at the company.
  • Never click on links in unsolicited emails. Links in emails can download malware onto your device. Don’t click links in emails from people you don’t know or from companies you haven’t done business with or have asked to be contacted by. Be wary of official-looking email; popular brands can easily be spoofed.
