The South Loop Wine Cellar at 1442 S. Michigan Ave. will be hosting a wine tasting event that includes a flu shot courtesy of the "shot fairy," Thursday September 17, 2009. Yes, you read wine tasting and a flu shot. The shot fairy is Dr. Scott Hanlon. Dr. Hanlon is a board certified family practice physician in practice for 10 years.
A cure for shot anxiety
As a father three boys, Dr. Hanlon knows how important vaccinations are for healthy living. To help his boys with their anxiety about getting shots, he started vaccinating them in their sleep. The shot fairy was born. Now, Dr. Hanlon also sponsors and participates in events like the above to help adults with shot anxiety.
To participate in the Vaccine & Vino, stop by the South Loop Wine Cellar between 7-9 p.m. this evening. To register, visit www.shotfairy.com.
