    I mostly remember the shots I’d get at school…I hated it because you had to pretend you were brave, when all you wanted to do was either scream or cry…

    I do remember having to get a measles shot — even evidence of having had the measles was not enough to get exemption.

    He should be glad it’s not Lucy who’s giving him the shot. Haha

    I have to make an appointment for my older daughter’s annual physical. This year it’s going to include a tetanus shot. She’s terrified of needles, and I can’t even give her the “oh, but it will only be a little pinch…not hurt at all” speech because tetanus shots H-U-R-T!!!

    When my dad would be taking us for vaccinations, he would tell us that the doc was going to use a needle that was over a foot long (holding his hands apart) and that the needle was square. If we weren’t intimidated just going to get the shot, my dad would try to liven things up. The only one of us who would cry at getting a shot was my younger brother.

    The thing is, bad as they are, inoculations are essential for children (and they can help adults, too). And what’s worse, getting the shots or risking getting the diseases?

    Yep, as I promised, we are now starting the 1967 Peanuts episodes.

    Back then each vaccination had its own shot or series of shots. Now they combine a lot of different things into just a few.

    How’s he going to get measles watching TV?

    I wish they had had shots when I was growing up, those viruses are not fun!

    Children are not pin cushions; they are walking, sneezing, drolling, touching petri dishes. But I like them anyway :)

    In the hands of a good nurse, if you don’t look (I still can’t look) you probably won’t even know it happened until you are told you can roll down your sleeve.

    Fortunately for me, I’m completely impervious to pain—except my own.

    Don’t forget to get your Flu shot!

    Wait until you have to donate blood, Linus, then you’ll be getting poked with a needle for a different reason.

    I distinctly remember the last time I was afraid to get a shot. I was just a youngster. The doctor told me to close my eyes and he would count to three. He kept rubbing my arm as he counted. When he got to three, he said “OK, done!” I hadn’t even felt it! BTW, that was the one and only time I didn’t feel it, but I never feared it again.
