Beware Of Phishing Emails About Fake CDC Flu Vaccination Registrations

An important notice for consumers so you do not get "mugged" during the flu season. The Centers For Disease Control published an advisory for consumers:

"CDC has received reports of fraudulent emails (phishing) referencing a CDC sponsored State Vaccination Program. The messages request that users must create a personal H1N1 (swine flu) Vaccination Profile on the website. The message then states that anyone that has reached the age of 18 has to have his/her personal Vaccination Profile on the site. The CDC has NOT implemented a state vaccination program requiring registration on Users that click on the email are at risk of having malicious code installed on their system."
