You're going to feel a little prick…

Today wasn’t very nice.

Before Rachel and Joanna can get into the school, they have to have proof that their immunisations are up to date.

This meant that we had to take them to a doctor today. Not fun.

They enjoyed being examined with cold stethoscopes, tickly hands and headphones for hearing tests but they didn’t enjoy the needles.

We’re in the 21st century and we still haven’t come up with an effective method of sub-cutaneous delivery of drugs that doesn’t involve forcing a tube the size of an oil pipe through the top layer of your epidermis.

At least that was how Rachel and Joanna both saw the situation.

Unfortunately, to get the required number of immunisations, Rachel needed 3 injections and Joanna needed 5. They should really sound-proof doctor’s surgeries.

If someone tells you that this isn’t going to hurt a bit, they’re lying through their teeth.
