Re: Re: [CHAT now vaccines was now IOWA-
HEre in Jefferson COunty Colorado, there is a higher than usual incidence of
Whooping Cough. The county health nurse was visitng the garden center,
wondering if she could set up a booth on Mother's Day weekend to encourage
folks to get whooping, dipthera, and tetanus shots. It would only cost $5 so
I guess it must be serious. However, I was a bit concerned about publicity
for the tetanus shot....garden center...tetanus in soil....Mother's DAy
weekend....terrorists in your soil...gloom and doom..don't garden mindset...
But then again with my sick sense of humor... I thought that publicity
something like GET YOUR MOTHER SHOT FOR MOTHER'S DAY
60 degrees at the house today who whoo
