People will do just about anything to make some scratch, apparently including peddling fake flu shots.
A Visalia, CA woman, who is still at large, has been posing as an employee of Kaweah Delta Hospital and making the rounds to local businesses, selling flu shots for the low, low price of twenty bucks a pop. The most amusing part is, people have actually been falling for the scam. But, then again, people are idiots. And this crafty woman is cashing in on that stupidity and the intense fear we industrious Americans have of getting sick and, fucking heaven forbid, having to be totally unproductive for a day or two. Not to mention that half the time you get a flu shot you get sick anyway, because they just don’t protect against every nasty bug out that is floating around out there in the atmosphere. So, unless you are very old, very young, or for some other reason have an extremely weak immune system, you could probably survive the flu season relatively unscathed if you simply boost your vitamin intake.
If you do find yourself unable to resist getting that all-powerful flu shot, go to a fucking shot clinic, for Christ’s sake, don’t just let some random woman who shows up at your job poke you with a needle, no matter how trustworthy she may seem.
