I was brought up to expect a clip round the ear if I objected to anything the doctor was doing and remember being amazed when some girls passed out when we were all queuing up in our bras to have the TB jab at school - no privacy, just one after the other. I recall being pleased when the girl in front of me, when the nurse tried to stick the needle in her, had difficulty and decided it was too blunt now and changed it in between her and me! I only knew the other one by name - not my friend or in my year LOL The ones who passed out obviously didn't have a mother like mine!
I recall all the polio jabs - 3 a month apart, then a booster a while later. Horrid - but there again we'd all seen people in West Bromwich who'd survived polio and No I flippin didn't want it, even at about 7? I knew that - so you just had to bear it and shut up. So I did bear it - and so I've always done that, no question.
