Stabbed to death

I am not so sure what to think of the corona vaccination programs. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not an antivaxxer or some kind of science sceptic. Quite the contrary. Science is a huge part of my life. Also, vaccines are life savers. Count me in on getting vaccinated. Get your shots too, please!

Yet, there is something that bothers me pretty much every time I watch the news.

I bloody HATE needles!

I have been afraid of needles all my life. I have literally fainted at every injection I have had since I was a child. It has not gotten better as an adult, I have just gotten smarter. These days I ask if I can lie down while I am stung. That sort of works.

There is such a bad stigma to vaccinations, and I think fear is a huge part of people not wanting to get a shot (or two!).

Please, stop showing people getting violently jabbed with needles the size that could be used to kill someone. No, shots from fifteen different angles do not make it better!

Help the tryphanophobes like me to get mentally prepared!

This vaccination program needs some serious PR work done.
