What's an Injection?
An injection is another word for a shot. Getting shots might not be fun, but they are an important way to keep you healthy.
An injection is when the doctor uses a needle to put medicine or a vaccine into your body. Kids who have diabetes may have to give themselves injections of a medicine called insulin.
