From the Cobbler's Children Have No Shoe File. Delawareonline reported on Monday that 25 percent of all health care workers in the state's seven acute-care hospitals did not receive a flu vaccinated in 2009. That's about 4,000 health care professionals. In one hospital, St. Francis in Wilmington, nearly 55 percent of workers said they didn't get a shot.

The reasons:

-- no time.

-- "I never catch the flu."

-- Fear the shot will give them the flu.

And, this one is rich:

-- scared of needles.
