LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The CDC estimates 7% of adults avoid immunizations because they're afraid of needles.
And that could be an issue for some trying to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
However, doctors say there are ways to ease your fear.
For people with a more mild fear, doctors suggest practicing relaxation techniques before getting vaccinated or finding something to distract yourself with during the shot.
For those with more severe cases, doctors suggest behavioral therapy.
