Health Tip: Getting Your Child Vaccinated
Distractions can help prevent pain

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Vaccinations are a necessary part of keeping your child healthy, but the pain and fear may be difficult to endure.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests:

  • Talk to the pediatrician about ways to manage your child's pain.
  • Distract a young child during the shot by singing a song, blowing bubbles or playing a game.
  • Act the doctor about using a numbing spray or cream.
  • Breast-feed or offer a pacifier to babies during vaccination.
  • Stay calm and reassure your child that everything is OK.
