Why aren't vaccinations considered cruel if they're really painful?

especially on a child and I even found it traumatic to be forced physically (being held down while the nurse put it in my upper arm). To add an insult to injury, I wasn't allowed to express myself during the process.

Update:

Please, no answers like *Oh you got issues* or *You gotta get over it*. No, no, no…none of that. I'm seriously curious.

Update 2:

Why can't things be taken orally?

    Setting a broken leg is painful, but think how many would be limping if it weren't  done.  As to vaccinations, better a shot than a tombstone.

    So would you rather spend life crippled or have died as a child? Eating healthy food can also be painful to a child that wants everything their way.

      Polio was rampant. Now there are very few cases of polio since MOST are vaccinated. Yes there are cripples that were never vaccinated and deaths also.

    because the diseases they protect against are considered far worse. I survived mumps, measles, rubella and chickenpox myself, but those are peanuts compared to diphteria, poliomyelitis, tetanus or whooping cough

    And now we're paying for that repression

    The shot Is way less painful than polio - so buck up buttercup.

    Because children aren't considered as real people until they are 18.

    It’s just a needle prick. The pain goes away after a few seconds.

      They still cause pain, don't they?

    Well, you didn’t get polio, did you?

      To Lillian: In hindsight, I realized that I may have gotten distracted by the responses about illnesses when I may have tried focusing on the actual pain/memory of the shot initially. And what you said wasn't hurtful.
