Guard your COVID-19 vaccination card


After you get your COVID-19 vaccine, keep your vaccination card safe — scammers are using the COVID-19 pandemic to try to steal your personal information.

Don't share a photo of your COVID-19 vaccination card online or on social media. Scammers can use content you post, like your date of birth, health care details, or other personal information to steal your identity.

Protect Yourself

You should get a COVID-19 vaccination card at your first vaccine appointment. If you didn't, contact the provider site where you got vaccinated or your state health department to find out how to get a card.

If someone contacts you to buy or sell a vaccination card, it's a scam.

If you suspect COVID-19 health care fraud, report it online or call 800-HHS-TIPS (800-447-8477). TTY users can call 1-800-377-4950.


The Medicare Team

CENLA Area Agency on Aging
is here to help you...
CAAA's Mission
The CENLA Area Agency on Aging develops and oversees a network of community-based services for seniors and their caregivers to enable seniors to continue to live in their communities for as long as possible.
We contract Older Americans Act resources to local agencies to provide access to a variety of services to solve problems that seniors may be having. These services include assistance in house maintenance and cleaning; caregiver and sitter resources; legal assistance; respite care; transportation; congregate meals, and home delivered meals, and wellness.
If you or a senior that you know is in need of help, please contact us and we will provide the resources to help answer your questions or solve the problem.
Additional assistance is provided on the following:
  • Extra Help: Low Income Subsidies for Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Programs
  • Medicare
  • Ombudsman Program
  • SHIIP: Senior Health Insurance Information Program

Disaster Relief Food Stamps
The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) is encouraging residents to prepare for hurricanes and disasters by pre-applying online for Disaster Supplemental Nurtrition Assistance Benefits (DSNAP). Most of our participants know this as Disaster Food Stamps.
