Each child had a story to tell about vaccines. About running away from doctors, about lollipops and band-aids, and feeling better knowing they were safer. The older kids knew how vaccines worked, while the youngest said only, “Ouch. It hurts.”
Each of the “GAVI Players” is unique. Yet, they all agreed: shots protect you from disease. Shots hurt but only for a minute and getting sick hurts a lot more. Shots are not fun, but they are absolutely necessary.
