The article presents a reprint of the article "Reducing the pain of childhood vaccination: an evidenced-based clinical practice guideline," by Anna Taddio, Christine Chambers, and Valerie Palda, which appeared at www.cmaj.ca. It states that vaccine injections conducted in childhood are a significant cause of distress to almost all Canadian children. Furthermore, the long-term consequences of untreated pain will include hyperalgesia, preprocedural anxiety, and needle fears.
