Health District: H1N1 email a hoax


The Better Business Bureau is warning about a potential email scam regarding H1N1 vaccinations and a request for personal information. 

The email appears to come from the CDC but instead points users to a fake web site that may be phishing for personal information. Anyone receiving such an email should avoid clicking on any embedded links. 

Your local health district does collect limited personal information when an H1N1 vaccine is administered. That information is kept under tight control. Health leaders do not solicit information in this manner.
