Make Your Child’s Shots Less Stressful
Vaccines help protect babies and young children against 14 serious diseases. Even though you are keeping her safe from diseases, it’s hard to see your child cry when she gets her shots. But you can take some steps before, during, and after a vaccine visit to ease the pain and stress of getting shots.
Before Your Visit
Read about the shots your child will get in advance. CDC’s vaccine webpage has a lot of useful information to help parents understand the importance of on-time vaccination. You can review this information before your appointment, and then, you can ask your child’s doctor any remaining questions or concerns you have about vaccines.
