Mrs. Claus worries about flu season. After all, I cannot be sick for the big day! I do not want to let anyone down Christmas morning!
Yes, I have to stay in tip-top shape! The elves and I need to be our best to make toys. The reindeer and I have to be ready to bring gifts on Christmas Eve. And of course, I have to stay healthy… just in case the elves want to have a snowball fight!
So Nurse Nice made a special visit to the workshop. She came to give us our flu shots.
Some of the elves were a little worried about getting their flu shot. Nurse Nice could see they were a bit afraid.
She made the elves feel better with a little chat. “Elves, have you ever been sick?” One by one, they all put up their hands.
“Is it fun being sick?” she asked.
“Oh, no!” the elves replied, “not at all!”
“Is it better to be really sick for a long time,” asked Nurse Nice. “Or, is it better to have a quick shot now?”
The elves did not want to miss ANY of the fun at Christmas so they all asked for their shots. They were still a little afraid, but they knew a shot was the right thing to do.
Nurse Nice then gave each elf a music toy. They held it while they got their shot. When they were done they all played Christmas songs together!
The elves liked holding the toy. It reminded them to wait for something better. They also really like feeling good at Christmas (almost as much as they like snowball fights!).
And I had my flu shot too! I do NOT want to be sick Christmas Eve!
