I HATE needles. I am very phobic of them to the point where usually I pass out. 

I avoid them at all costs but now I am required to get one for my job and I am freaking out. I have heard they are very painful afterwards. 

Ugh this sucks....i know a lot of people might not understand but I am dreading it.

Getting any shot if you are phobic of needles is a very big deal

Why do you need a tetanus shot?

so sign a religious waiver and say it's against your religion...tell your employer you read the ingredients, and it's against your religion.

Breathe deeply while it's happening. You'll be fine. It's not so much the pain of the needle as it is the mental torture you put yourself through before you get it.

Im allergic. One of the very rare ones but yea, it saves me from getting one. I gotta be very careful though.
