All Santa wants for Christmas is the H1N1 swine flu vaccine

Some who play Jolly Old Saint Nick think they should get vaccinations first.

(AP Photo/Jim Cole)David Oelerich stands by some of the Santa suits he rents to Santa's around New England and Canada at his "Costumes of Nashua" shop in Hudson, N.H., Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2009. Ernest Berger, president of the nation's largest volunteer Santa group, wants Congress to declare Santas a high-priority for the vaccine for two reasons: they're exposed to hordes of children, and many of them are overweight.
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Forget cookies and milk. Santa wants the swine flu vaccine.
Many of the nation’s Santas want to be given priority for the vaccine and not just because of those runny-nosed kids. There’s also the not-so-little matter of that round belly. Research has suggested obesity could be a risk factor.
Swine flu has become such a concern that the Amalgamated Order of Real Bearded Santas featured a seminar on the illness at a recent conference in Philadelphia. The group also urged its members to use hand sanitizer and take vitamins to boost their immune systems.
The president of the organization said he also hopes parents will keep sick kids away.

Jupiter Images UnlimitedResearch shows vitamin D can help protect us from flu infection.
"There’s been so much information this fall about flu, particularly swine flu, that it’s hard to make sense of it all. But one piece of information that I think gets missed in all the discussion is the importance of vitamin D in preventing influenza infections and boosting immunity. Research is accumulating about the relationship between flu susceptibility and vitamin D levels, and it’s showing just how important it is to keep vitamin D levels in the 50-80 ng/mL range," she says.
