and now this?

Exxon-Mobil Workers Got Fake Flu Shots

By WENDY BENJAMINSON, Associated Press Writer 20 minutes ago

HOUSTON - As many as 1,000 Exxon Mobil employees and 14 residents of a senior citizens home were injected with fake flu vaccine, authorities said Friday, and the owner of a home health care company was arrested.

Preliminary tests indicated the syringes were filled with purified water, U.S. Attorney Chuck Rosenberg said. And no ill effects from the shots were reported.

But Hermina Palacio, head of the Harris County health department, recommended that people who received the shots get tested for blood-borne pathogens such as the
AIDS virus and hepatitis B and C.

Exxon Mobil offered blood tests and counseling to the employees who received the shots at a health fair Oct. 19-20 at the oil company's complex of refineries and chemical plants in Baytown, just east of Houston.

Iyad Abu El Hawa, 35, was arrested Thursday. El Hawa, owner of Comfort & Caring Home Health and two other home health centers in Houston, was charged with Medicare fraud in connection with shots given to 14 elderly people at a home in LaPorte on Oct. 21.

When asked if El Hawa would be charged with giving bogus shots at the Exxon Mobil fair, prosecutors said only that their investigation is continuing.

"This is a very callous and disturbing crime," Rosenberg said. "He purposefully put at risk many, many people."

A call to Comfort & Caring was not immediately returned.

i got these tips off an article on msn. i like the last one the best!

No-nonsense tips

Finally, a few ideas you can use and share in the workplace to help stop the spread of flu germs:

If you know you’re sick with the flu, stay home.
Get a flu shot, which not only protects you but helps prevent contagion.
Within a day of becoming ill, ask your doctor about antiviral medications, which can shorten the episode and contain the virus.
Be especially cautious between late December and early March, the peak of flu season.
Sneeze or cough into your elbow, not into your hands.
Clean phones, doorknobs and desktops with alcohol swabs.
Throw used tissues away!
Wash your hands and face often with hot, soapy water.
During flu season, never let anyone lick your keyboard.

Just got my annual flu shot. I know that a lot of people don't get them, but I have to because of a medical condition. If I don't, I get really sick with the flu. Anyone else here has to get one?

i work with college students, so bugs in my environment spread like butta. i'm not convinced they work, seeing as how last time i got one i got the flu anyway. but...like i said, i work with college students.

i got mine today though. p.s. faculty and staff pay more for these than the students do.

We can get them free at work today and tomorrow but I think I'm skipping it. I'm afraid of getting shots.

I am a huge needle wimp.

I hate needles.
I'm not entirely convinced they help.
I got it last year and still got the flu real bad.
And yet, I will be coerced into getting it again this year. (aka, if I like having a roof over my head....)

At least they're free.

I used to always get the shot, and I never really got too sick, but last year I didn't get a shot and I got sicker than I've ever been. It hit me hard within about one hour and then I lay on the floor for 3 days and didn't get up, I couldn't even climb into bed. I missed a week of work and couldn't eat for 3 days, couldn't even keep water down for 2 days, it was horrible. I'll get a shot this year.

When my mum was alive I always got a flu shot since the flu could be deadly for her (she had a damaged heart), but now I skip them. I work at home and my aunt I take care of, who has down's syndrome, doesn't currently go to a sheltered workshop, so I figure our chances of getting it are fairly low.

I'll regret it if we get sick though....
