Does the meningitis and the Tdap shot hurt!!?

I'm Renz! I'm getting the Tdap and the meningitis shot on september 8th. i have a couple of questions. Does the meningitis and the Tdap shot hurt? How big is the needle for the meningitis shot? How big is the hypodermic for the Tdap hurt? tell the truth plz and dont be an *** and scare me im 11 yrs old. plzzzzzz help out and tell me!
I had those shots last year. It really wasn't bad at adjectives. I wouldn't sweat it if I were you. The needles are just normal syringes and everything'll be cool.
the tdap doesnt hurt and i HATE needles. seriously, they scare the heck out of me!

the meningitis shot stings a little when they do it at first, but it scarcely hurts at all after its done. The needles are both the general size for immunizations... more or less a little over 1 inch :]

You'll be fine, just breathe, and it will be over in no time.
I didnt even concentration when they did the Tdap ;]

good luck , and remember that it's better you get the two shots then if u completed up in the hospital with the disease and had to acquire a bagillion shots :]

good luck :] Source(s): had all my immunization :]
Listen to the nurse. :)

I can't tell you there will be no dull pain, because pain is different for every person. However, the needle on a standard intramuscular (in the muscle) shot is in the region of 1 to 1 1/2 inches (very short). There are some things you can do to help though!

You can ask the nurse to give you the shots at the same time. This will prevent you from one stuck twice. If they don't want to do that, there is something else. Normally these are given in the bottom (butt). Remember to RELAX the muscle that the needle is going into. Tightening the muscle will hurt worse. Also, the nurse might be ready to give it in your upper arm, if you prefer that. A big factor is deciding if you want the nurse to narrate you or not, and if you want to look or not. Find what is most comfortable to you and don't be afraid to speak up for what you want! Be honest with the nurse and she will happily do everything you ask. If you have any more question, don't hesitate to e-mail me! :)
