Interpreting Allele frequency equal to 1.0

ambi1999ambi1999 United KingdomMember


In the following vcf file, the AF allele frequency of ALT allele is 1.0. Does it mean that it is not a true SNP of interest? Does it also mean that ALT allele always occurs and REF allele never occurs in the population?

Also not sure how allele count AC=37 is being calculated.
