Big Shots Get Shots, App Helps Kids Overcome Fear of Needles

Big Shots Get Shots” is a campaign by Healthline Network that aims to help children overcome their fear of needles. It features a free storybook iOS app that can be used to distract your needle-phobic child on their next visit to the doctor. The app stars the voices of Irene McGee (“sea urchin”) and Winslow Porter (“pufferfish”).

One of the best ways to make the experience of getting a shot less traumatic is to give your child something fun to play with. Healthline’s Pablo the Pufferfish app is the perfect companion for your child’s next doctor’s appointment. It is clinically proven that distraction helps ease the pain of getting a shot, so make sure your child is playing with the Pablo the Pufferfish app during their next immunization.
