  1. I like your suggestion to teach our child how vaccinations help others so they have a reason to endure the pain. I want to find a pediatric care clinic in my area where I can start taking my son for vaccinations for peace of mind about his health. Thanks for teaching me these helpful tips and tricks for having a good conversation with my son about vaccinations.
