I understand that getting your COVID-19 vaccine for the first time is an exhilarating experience, and because of that, you want to document it for your social media following. However, the Better Business Bureau says: don't.

It’s only a matter of time before similar cons come to the United States and Canada. Posting photos of your card can help provide scammers with information they can use to create and sell phony ones.
Colorado is currently in stage 1A and 1B, with phase 1B.1 and IB.2 starting February 8. This means Coloradans who are high risk, 70+, first responders, or heath care workers.

So far, the State of Colorado says that more than 470,000 have received the first dose and more than 140,000 have received two doses.
