An interesting email

I found this in my inbox today - I am unsure as to its provenance, but it rings true...

Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Richard Head, from the Department of Health
Procurement Directorate.

As you may know, some time ago we purchased 90 million doses
of Swine Flu vaccine from Glaxo SmithKline and from Baxters.

To date, only 3 million doses have been issued, and as we forgot to
take proper care when signing the Glaxo deal, we are left with 57
million doses of vaccine that are currently useless.

In order to save our department's blushes, and to ensure the
continuing payment of our well deserved bonuses, we would like
to come to an arrangement with you and the rest of the British
people to dispose of the excess vaccine by depositing it in your
offspring and elderly relatives.

We are assured that the vaccine is safe, and will be instructing
all GPs in the next few weeks to require that all children under 5
and adults over 65, as well as those in poor health, attend their
surgeries for mandatory vaccination.

Please respond with details of your young, old or sick relatives so
that we can swiftly dispose of this embarrassing oversupply.

Thankyou for your support,
Dick Head,
DH Director of Procurement.
Anyone know whether I should reply? It sounds like a 419 scam to me...
