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

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.

Well, you didn’t get polio, did you?
