Children’s Needle Covers / Reducing Vaccination Fear

Children’s Needle Covers
Children’s Needle Covers

The Children's Needle Cover aims to alleviate the fear of vaccinations. Many children are scared of vaccines, typically due to the design of the traditional needle, this product aims to eliminate this by hiding the needle within a child-friendly design. Simply slide the cover over the pre-existing vaccination needle, while placing two fingers in the rear holes, then proceed with the vaccination. The child then can take the toy home, from start to finish a positive experience is created from an originally fearful and negative experience.
