Miaomiao is already three years old at present. As it’s desired on the handbook of vaccination, she needs to take the A+C group of epidemic cerebrospinal meningitis vaccine after her three years old birthday. We have planned to take her to take vaccine earlier. But our plan was postponed by the bad weather.

As it’s a sunny day today, Miaomiao’s grandma and i take Miaomiao out to have breakfast as well as take vaccine in the morning. We all have some hot and dry noodles in a nearby breakfast shop. Then we started to walk to the center for disease control which is not very far away. As Miaomiao doesn’t want to seat in her small cart but wants to be held by me all the time on the way, we take a taxi to the center for disease control at last.

There are many babies with their guardians here to take vaccine. The working staffs here are also very busy. We wait behind some other parents for a while and then it’s our’s turn. We give the handbook of vaccination to a working staff, she checks the handbook for a little while and asks me to sign on a vaccination note she gives to me. After that, we take Miaomiao to the beside desk where a nurse is already preparing the vaccination for Miaomiao. I hold Miaomiao to let her sit on the desk, the nurse injects vaccine for her soon.

Miaomiao doesn’t cry during this vaccination at all. I think this is due to the story books she usually reads at night. I have bought a series of rabbit Qiaoqiao story books for her sevral months ago. They were her most favorite books among all the story books i bought for her before. She liked to listen to me or her dad to read these books for her almost everyday. One of the stories writes that rabbit Qiaoqiao doesn’t cry while she is taken an injection. Her bravery is praised by her teacher and she becomes the good example of other little animals. Miaomiao likes the story and i also read this story for her last night. She said she would not cry and would behave like rabbit Qiaoqiao before fell asleep yesterday. So when she is taken vaccine today, i ask her if she would cry or not cry as rabbit Qiaoqiao. She smiles and says that she wouldn’t cry. So she really doesn’t cry during vaccination. 

We go to the rest room in the center for disease control after taken vaccine. Both her grandma and i praise Miaomiao for her bravery. “You are as brave as rabbit Qiaoqiao today, Miaomiao.”i tell her. She looks happy and excited and laughs sevral times for it then.

We shop in the nearby supermarket and go home after that. Miaomiao’s next vaccination would be taken next year. And i believe she also wouldn’t cry at that time either. Besides, reading good books for kids is really very nice and the good impacts may last a lifetime.
