Recovering from bad shot session ....

my son and daughter are a year apart. She'll be entering KG in the fall and him 1st. She was with us last fall when he got his kindergarten boosters and now hers are scheduled for later this month. When he had his done the nurse was busy (nurses generally do the shot giving) and the dr decided to do it himself. It was a train wreck, he obviously had not administered vaccines in a long while and he made it a slow, long drawn out process requiring physical restraint at the end. And when he got blood on his glove he stopped, switched gloves and cleaned up before putting bandaids on and pulling his pant legs back down. She remembers this CLEARLY... how can I assure her that her shots wont be nearly as memorable or traumatic? It's pretty hard to reason with her considering she knows very well she's going in for the same physical and vaccines as her brother.
