Before the visit

Come prepared! Take these steps before you or your child receive a vaccine to help make the immunisation visit less stressful.

Supporting your child

  • Be honest with your child. Explain that needles can pinch or sting, but that it won’t hurt for long.
  • Encourage other family members, especially older siblings, to support your child.
  • Remind children that vaccines can keep them healthy.
