Making vaccinations shots less stressful

Following are the tips to prepare your child for vaccination and minimize the stress associated:

  • Keep your calm and stop worrying since your child is very sensitive to negative vibes.
  • Get convinced of the fact that it’s a temporary pain giving lifelong permanent protection.
  • Get all your queries solved prior to vaccinations.
  • If your child is older, then you can make him understand how small needle makes him/ her stronger.
  • Hug your child while getting immunized, your embrace makes things easy.
  • Divert his/ her attention with a favorite toy.
  • For infants, breastfeeding is the best analgesic (pain reliever).
  • Adverse reactions post vaccination are rare.
  • Ice fomentation of the local part reduces pain.
  • Weight appropriate paracetamol is enough for post-vaccination fever.
  • Call your doctor if the child develops hives, wheezing (or any allergies) after the vaccination.
