I pledge to create a positive and comforting experience during shots.

I pledge to spread the word. Talking about fear of shots will help to end needle phobia.

  • According to Dr. Amy Baxter, "A parent born in the 60s or 70s may have gotten six shots by age 6, but today their kids get up to 33."
  • 50 million Americans have a fear of shots*. It's a top ten American fear.
* Based on a Healthline survey conducted in December 2012. A Target/Harris Interactive survey estimated needle fear as high as 23%.
