Fear is your body's way of telling you something is not right.
Why do you think you need a Tetanus shot, anyways?

i get a bit nervous from getting vaccinated too. im more afraid of blood tests than anything else. my hand starts to feel funny when they take blood out and thats the bit i really dont like. however when i do get a needle or blood test i look away. i dont watch what they are doing. i look at the wall, take a deep breath and try and think of something else. an injection is a process that takes less than 10 seconds so its all over before you know it
if you keep thinking about it, then you are going to get even more nervous and scared.
