I took my children to the hospital (ENT) to see a doctor beacause my 6-year-old son has an allergic rhinitis.
Since they always get a flu shot at this hospital every year, so I was supposed to make a reservation for it.
I asked the receptionist about the flu shot, she answered,
"You don't need to make a reservation. If you would like to, you can get a shot today."
"Really? OK. My chilren didn't expect it, so I am going to ask them. But maybe I let them take."
I told her.
My children were playing at the waiting place for kids.
I asked them,
"You can get a flu shot today. While we are at it, let's finish the first today!"
Children need to get a flu shot twice.
My 6-year-old son looked a little surprised, but he said
As for my 5-year-old daughter, it is unexpected.
She looked shaken up and said,
"What? No! I am scared.... but can you hug me while I am getting a shot?"
I was surprised at her attitude.
Last year, she was in panic and she cried in a big voice moving violently.
It was hard to make her settle down.

But this time, she was a little nervous and scared, but she didn't run away.
A kind of medicine of flu vaccination changed this year, so it was painful even for me.
But she could bear it.
After she finished getting a shot, she started weeping.
I praised her while hugging.
"Good job! I can't beleive it. You weren't in panic like last year. You could put up with it. I know it was very painful. Of course you can weep. But you can do it! I am very proud of you!"
She was weeping but she looked proud.
As for my 6-year-old son, he had no problem.
He showed his sister an awsome example ahead.
I was proud of my children yesterday.
