A new edition to the South Side Parade Is this doctor is such need of business that he has stooped to this?
One can only hope Judge Evans can at least make things better for the children in the Juvenile detention center. Maybe he can get the shot fairy to come in?


That's what happens when you're building an eight-foot-tall character for a float in the South Side Irish St. Patrick's Day Parade.

While his wife Colleen watches, Dr. Scott Hanlon puts the finishing touches on the Shot Fairy, which will adorn his float in Sunday's South Side Irish St. Patrick's Day Parade.


"It's going pretty well. There's a lot of chicken wire and paper mache," he said after taking a break from painting with son Brody.

Hanlon and his family built and painted a fairy that will be on a float Sunday promoting his new business.

Hanlon, a family physician with Evergreen Medical Ltd., will soon start ShotFairy.com, a company that uses the tooth fairy as inspiration.

Much like its dental counterpart, the shot fairy will come into children's homes when they are sleeping.

But instead of leaving money beneath the child's pillow in exchange for a baby tooth, the shot fairy will leave a lollipop after she gives the child an inoculation.

The shot fairy on the float will be dressed as a nurse. She'll have wings. In one hand she'll hold a lollipop. In the other, she'll hold a syringe.

"It's a gentle approach," said Hanlon, who turns 40 on St. Patrick's Day.

Sometimes, he said, giving a shot to a fearful child is anything but gentle.

"There are times - ask any nurse - there are times when you need three or four people to hold down a child for a shot," Hanlon said.

Hanlon said the company should be up and running by April, along with his Web site, www.shotfairy.com, that's under construction.

    Hey Third, the Shot Fairy is a good idea. First, there are the paranoid parents who think shots creates autism. Second, other parents who do bring their kids in for shots are raising wussies. I had to go to the county clinic for a booster because that was the cheapest place to get it. I heard kid after kid after kid hysterically screeching and screaming their lungs out even before they got their shots. If I misbehaved like that when I was a kid, I was going to get it from the parents when we got home. I made a smart remark to my nurse about the screaming kids down the hall, she looked horrified (not at what I said), and said that kids do that all day long.

    Yes Kitty it will be nice to see if this will be succesful.
    I know that kids now need Chicken pox shots to get into school, which is a good idea, why not avoid something like an epidemic.
    The pediatrian told me that if all children would get flu shots then older people would not have to. Let's face it kids are not the cleanest, but then again some adults are not either. That's why I am so leary about those pot luck days at work, you never know who has cats walking on their counter, no offense, but not everyone disinfects.

    Thinking about getting a car insurance quote?
    [url=http://sex-car.org]Car Insurance[/url]
    A growing number of people are dropping their auto insurance to try to save money, according to a recent study by the Insurance Research Council (IRC). If the current rate of unemployment continues, the IRC estimates that the national uninsured rate will climb from 13.8 percent in 2007 to 16.3 percent in 2010. With that many people driving without coverage, it's dangerous to be uninsured. But how much car insurance do you really need?
    If you're like many people feeling the pinch, your inclination is to get the bare minimum of insurance coverage required by the law in your state. That's a good place to start, though those minimums may not fully protect you -- or your assets -- if you file a claim. We recommend getting more than the minimum coverage unless you are driving a beater and have no assets to protect.
