Oct 21, 2011 Vaccinations Its that time of year again where many of us receive our flu shots. I just had mine, and boy did it hurt…well my arm was a little sore the next day. So, this got me thinking about vaccinations. I know all my vaccination questions will be answered by the pediatrician such as the various types of shots, the number of shots, and the time frame. What concerns me is a crying baby. How many times will we have to see our child in this situation? How many hours will our child be crying and screaming? Will he be upset the whole day? What can we do to better the situation? As much as I am concerned about our baby’s unhappiness, I realize it is only temporary. In the long run, vaccinations will be beneficial to having a healthy growing child.
