Anxiety and Pain Management

Immunizations are a routine part of medical care for good health. As most vaccines are administered by injection, this may cause pain and anxiety for some individuals, who may then delay or avoid vaccinations, leaving them vulnerable to vaccine-preventable diseases. Mitigating pain and anxiety during vaccination is important for improving individual vaccine experience and promoting vaccine uptake.
