the woman administering the nose spray isn't even wearing gloves, which creates a huge potential to transfer viruses. hopefully, she regularly washes with soap and hot water.

Unpublished

i guess mayor deke poked his head out looked around and saw no bullets flying and figured it was safe to come out and scurried to warren road elementary for his photo op, i guess he figured he would get "shot" instead of a "flu shot" if he were to stop at one of the inner city schools (that are closer to his office) and get his flu vaccine

The mayor set a great example

The mayor set a great example for the kids by getting the vaccine in front of them. For those who don't know the facts, but just want to speak negatively about the mayor, the company who makes the flu mist set the date for the and the mayor complied. He did not choose the school and neither did they. The schedule for the schools were already set up by the school board prior to the PR campain request. The mayor did however go to Laney Walker Boulevard to get his vaccine last year and yes, he has to pay just like everyone else. Check your facts before spouting off incorrect information. CDC guidelines for vaccine administration state that gloves are not required when giving vaccine unless the person administering the vaccine is likely to come in contact with potentially infectious body fluids.
