Young boy explains how he got a flu vaccination

We love how honest he was about his feelings...

Making sure your kids have their immunisations or necessary vaccinations isn't something that all parents attest to. 

Some do not believe in vaccines and that's their prerogative. But for those who do visit medical professionals, there is a slight bit of nervousness for parents who have to soothe their babies after they get poked. 

One child explained his flu shot in the most adorable way and we couldn't help but share it with you. 

The little boy's mother did a post-flu shot interview with him and the way he explained things makes us just want to hug him. 

Not only was he brave in sharing the story with his mother, but he was also very expressive about it all. 

The way he recounts what happened makes one think that he was in a battle. That's the thing about trauma, regardless of how mediocre or simple it seems to us, it's not the same for the child who goes through it.
