We understand that some young people find it difficult to have vaccinations due to a fear of needles. Please be reassured that all of our vaccinators are trained to deal with this and can make adaptations to ensure the young person feels as comfortable as possible. This may include having the vaccine in a quieter area. Please make sure the vaccinator is aware and they can work with you to have the vaccine.
