Machine vending first aid products.

This tag overlaps with vending=chemist. The machine in the photograph - despite its marketing claims - barely sells any items that should be part of a first aid kit. It is unclear what would consitute a real vending machine of first aid products (neither condoms, syringes nor tampons are "first aid" products) and whether such machines exist. The terminology "first aid" should be used wisely and responsibly by mappers and only applied where appropriate to avoid misunderstandings in emergency situations.
