Have you got your jab already? Today Roy and I had our jabs. He had his 18mth DPT ( Diphtheria, Pertussis & Tetanus) booster while I took the 1st out of 3 Hep-B(Hepatitis B ) shot. He was a brave boy and didn’t even grinch at the sight of the needle. He was more interested in raiding the jar of sweets that the doctor had on his desk. My shot was a bit more painful than I had expected but seeing that Roy could sit through with without any fuss I couldn’t show any sign of discomfort. I just grit my teeth and went through it looking unaffected [ Can't show that I have less tolerance to pain then he has right?? ]
With that prick it marked the end of the series of compulsory shots that he had to go through. The next shot ( which is optional but I want him to take) will be the Chickenpox Vaccine which I had scheduled for next month together with my 2nd Hep-B shot.
*Kid’s health has a detailed write up on DPT and Hep-B if anyone is interested.
