Santa has made a good case for being classed as a priority for swine flu vaccination.
He cited the fact that he comes into close contact with millions of children in the run up to Christmas in grottos all over the world, and added that he personally handles all the presents he delivers on Christmas Eve.
Santa has also made a plea that his elves also be immunised against Swine Flu as a matter of urgency.
The H1N1 swine flu virus is extremely contagious. Given that children are already classified as an at risk group it makes sense that Santa and his helpers be immunised as a matter of urgency.
Jackie Brown Medical are calling on Minister of Health Mary Harney to address this situation immediately.
