Vaccinations Plus

Maybe I need more coffee but I’ve got to tell you that “blood-sucking trained spy nurse” sounds like a pretty good career move to me.

“The CIA organised a fake vaccination program in the town where it believed Osama bin Laden was hiding in an elaborate attempt to obtain DNA from the fugitive al-Qaida leader’s family, a Guardian investigation has found. They’re a bit thin on details about how this program actually worked, but they’re filling in the blanks with blood-sucking trained spy nurses and handbags kitted out with “electronic devices”..”

And now you tell me that this story the result of the mindless repetition of a single published conjecture reprinted endlessly by reporters and news outlets too lazy to do their own investigation. So now the only lasting legacy from this bit of nonsense is further suspicions of vaccinations.

Not to worry! No way will vaccinations fall out of favor once their original purpose of PREVENTING DISEASE and SAVING LIVES is no longer valued. How do I know this? Because a secondary reason to get vaccinated is becoming more popular around the world. Observe the Flickr group called “Sexy Women, Sexy Vaccination Scars”.  As one of the scar enthusiasts there puts it:

“Vaccination scar can be adornment of female body, and very asymetric done can be this adornment not, also I think medical personnel should not forget it, especially vaccinating women and girls – future women.”

So there. Even if the trained spy nurse thing doesn’t work out, I have a potential future as a Vaccination Esthetician. God bless America, land of endless opportunity.

  1. At the crossroads of nursing, vaccinations, and fashion lies the particular genius of Cripes Suzette.

  2. In pediatrics, “vaccination scars” tend to be asymmetric because the patients rarely get an opportunity to bite/scratch the sexy RN a second time, let alone on the opposite side.

  3. There’s also your eerie resemblance to young Diana Rigg as Mrs. Peel. Make sure you get that on your resume.

  4. Wow, I’m esthetically pleasing to someone. A (to judge from the grammar and content of the remark) foreign pervert to be sure, but I can’t be choosy at my age and physical condition.

  5. Thanks, Suz, I never realized how perfectly placed my scar was! I do remember being terrified when the doctor wanted to give it to me, and running around the table w/him chasing me. Very vivid memory (unless that was a different shot)
