Santa’s wish list: Flu shot & hand sanitizer

Swine Flu concerns

With all the confusion about H1N1 and who needs to get the shot, who doesn’t and why nobody realized about the seriousness about the santas. All of the country (and world) have santas who work from the beginning of December up until the big day and have thousands excited kids waiting to tell santa whats on their list. But now with the swine flu scare the santas are almost a must when it comes to getting the vaccination. Unfortuately santas are not officially in the priority high-risk group according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and because the vaccine is in limited supply. This article really isn’t an ethical issue but because of the worry of children getting swine flu they won’t be seeing santa this year. I just remember when I was little how big of a deal it was to go see santa at the near by mall!! Doctors can’t really tell parents not to bring thier kids to see santa but with the thousands of kids sitting on santas lap this year there will be a lot of germs and viruses going around, which is something to think twice about.

    I also agree that Santas should be given the H1N1 vaccine. While I understand that the vaccine is in short supply, it makes sense to protect all of the people who have a direct interaction with children. The last thing that parents should have to do is worry about their children getting the H1N1 virus from visiting Santa. However, I guess that there is no way to get rid of all possible ways of preventing the spread of the H1N1 vaccine, ao everyone can’t live in fear of getting the disease.

    Alcohol based hand sanitisers are great and kill all germs but need to be re-applied every 2 -3 hours or after washing. All a bit of a chore and based on old technology. Hand sanitiser from Healdi is unique & based on new technology. One application per day keeps hands free of germs and keeps killing them no matter how many times you wash your hands. It is kind to hands and ideal for handling babies and food. Developed from the bactericides used to combat MRSA in hospital operating theatres and wards it is ideal for care workers, police, nurses, office workers who hot desk and anybody in regular contact with other people. Have a look at http://www.healdi.co.uk and keep you and your family safe.

    How come no one does the story about the new sanitizers on the market which are alcohol-free? There are new products that kill 3 times the germs, work up to 30 minutes, and they are safer to use than alcohol. This one is my favorite: http://www.cleanphirst.com/store/alcohol_free_foam_hand_sanitizer.asp
