Flu Shots

Posted by Santa Claus on December 12th, 2011

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!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S.  Do you think it is good the elves and I get our flu shots?  Do you think it is good to get your flu shot?   You can click here to tell me about it or scroll down to see what other people have written!

    My friend Rebekah said:

    This isn’t about the flu shot but it is about a shot. last night on 12/13/ll I step on a board that was sharp and got a 1 and a half inch splinter and i had to go to the doctors and had to get a num shot on the bottom of my foot and it hurt alittle but not to much so I guess thats how the elves felt when they got there flu shot. ( they were scared and I was scared.)

    Dear Santa,i think that if you go get a flu shot you wont get the flu on Christmas Eve.When i got the shot it didnt hurt at all.she told me to relax my arm.if you go get your flu shot,relax your arm.all it feels like is a tiny ball going in your skin.

    dear santa ,
    i think it is best for you to get a flu shot because,that means you wounldn’t be sick for christmas.

    My friend ariana said:

    It is good that you want to stay well for the big day. Im certin that there will be a lot of disappointed boys and girls if you got sick and werent able to give them all the toys they wanted. We dont want that to happen. So keep getting your flu shot so you wont get sick.
