FEELING READY

It’s completely natural that children might feel anxious about having their vaccines; if they don’t know what to expect they might imagine lots of fears that won’t really happen. According to our experienced nurses, you can reassure your child about some of their worries:

  • The injection is not like a blood test, it’s easier and much quicker
  • It feels like a pinch or a cat scratch
  • The needles are not huge - just long enough to get the the right place!
  • It’s much quicker than having a piercing or a tattoo
  • The needle cannot break off in your arm
  • Your arm will not fall off
  • You will not get the disease
  • The vaccine protects you, it doesn’t harm you.
