Scared of Shots

Dear Highlights,
I have to get some shots soon, and I’m scared. What should I do?

Many people fear shots. Fortunately, shots usually are much less painful than we expect and sting for just a moment.

Talk with your parents or doctor about what to expect and how the shots will help you. If you start to worry, remember what they said. You can also ask a parent to tell you jokes or to talk to you as you’re getting the shots. That will help distract you, and before you know it, the shots will be over!
