There is something perverse in this...I can't put my finger on it

Are the vaccinations free or just the skating? Do we have to skate to get vaccinated?

I had whooping cough last summer. Turns out the vaccine wears off after a while. There went two months of my life. Seriously. This shit will fuck you up. Get vaccinated.

The old shots wear off, but the new Tdap (since 2005) is a one shot, if you had the old ones.

So just get it and skate away.

If you already have the disease, the vaccination will do you no good. That's just science.

Is this some sort of Mars Hill thing?

My SO's kids are here this weekend and we were trying to think of free/cheap things to do with them.... This would sort of be a hilariously mean activity. I like it!

I don't like getting shots while I'm sitting still in a doctor's office. I sure as hell don't trust anyone near me with needles while we're on ice.

@8 The vaccinator's dad will be there holding him/her up by the armpits. Happy?

Pro: free skating
Con: lots of people who haven't been vaccinated for contagious diseases.

@3 - truth. Whooping cough can fuck your shit up for months, break your ribs and kill your babies. It's serious business.

This skating/vaccination package event is silly but if it gets some people vaccinated, I'm all for it.

When are we going to get the option to like other people's comments, dammit? Some of the ones in this thread really should be liked.

My husband had whooping cough years ago and I almost smothered him with a pillow it was so annoying to listen to.
